New domain name regulations entered into force in Hungary on June 1, 2011 with the aim to shorten and simplify the registration procedure.
One of the main amendment concerns the time to object a domain name registration: trademark owners have now eight days (instead of fourteen days as in the old provisions) to object if a third party registers a domain that infringes their rights.
