Domain Name Enforcement: Present and Future

Several factors have converged to drive a dramatic increase in Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) filings. The large-scale redaction of domain-name registrant data, increases in the number of malicious actors due to COVID-related unemployment, and the unprecedented acceleration of e-commerce adoption have all played a part in driving a record increase in UDRP case filings.

This webcast will examine the current and future state of the UDRP (and domain-name enforcement more broadly). The expert panel will discuss, among other topics:

  • The surge in cases of domain-name infringement and the corresponding burst of UDRP filings (including ccTLD cases).
  • The effective use of the UDRP as part of an overall enforcement program (including the economic implications and complexities of multiple-domain UDRP filings).
  • Technologies for finding, investigating, and attributing infringing domain names.

Finally, the panel will analyze and assess the potential policy changes that may come from ICANN’s forthcoming review of the UDRP.

This webinar is open to all with special pricing for INTA members. CLE credits are also available. Registration info is available at this link.
