The Role of Arbitration in Domain Name Disputes

  • Corrs Chambers Westgarth

Talk by Julian O'Sullivan


Over 40,000 domain name disputes have been decided by arbitration since 1999 under the Uniform Domain Names Dispute Resolution Policy.  These have included disputes arising out of commercial relationships between trademark owners and their distributors, cybersquatting, fraud, counterfeiting and obscenity.  This presentation will examine:

  • the benefits and limitation of domain name arbitration versus litigation;
  • the legal principles applied in domain name arbitrations;
  • standing to bring a claim and the procedure for submitting domain name disputes to arbitration; and

new dispute resolution procedures for the new top level domain names.
