Domain Name Dispute Resolution Process
Uniform Domain-name Dispute Resolution Process (UDRP) was
created in 1999 as a way of quickly and cheaply dispensing
with cybersquatting cases. Although not an official court
proceeding, the UDRP is creating quasi-legal precedent in
domain name battles.
the UDRP is the trademark holder's first punch -- the prelude
to a court battle. With more than 80% of UDRP cases resulting
in transfer of the disputed domain from the registrant to
the trademark holder, free speech and trademark fair use are
threatened on the Net.
students can learn about the UDRP and get credit toward the
Center for Law and Technology's Law-Tech Certification program
