What is a domain
name?
is the address of a web site that is intended to
be easily identifiable and easy to remember,
such as goolge.com, or nift.ac.in
domain names have become business
identifiers and, increasingly, even trademarks
themselves, such as amazon.com.
By using existing trademarks for domain
names - sony.com, for example - businesses
attract potential customers to their websites.

What is the nature of the
disputes?

Cybersquatting - pre-emptive registration of
trademarks by third parties as domain names.

Why so many
disputes?
No agreement within the Internet community
that would allow organizations that register
domain names to pre-screen the filing of
potentially problematic names.
The increasing business value of domain
names on the Internet has led to more
cybersquatting

How does the UDRP
work?
UDRP (Uniform Domain Resolution Policy)
The UDRP permits complainants to file a case

with a resolution service provider, specifying:
the domain name in question,
the respondent or holder of the domain name,
the registrar with whom the domain name was

registered,
the grounds for the complaint.

What factors guide the
panelists'
decisions?


Whether the domain name is identical or
confusingly similar to a trademark or service
mark in which the complainant has rights.
Whether the respondent has any rights or
legitimate interests in the domain name
Whether the domain name was registered and
is being used in bad faith
