Chapter 2: WIPO UDRP procedure
Restricted access

A UDRP complaint is initiated by submitting the complaint electronically to a UDRP provider such as WIPO. The complaint specifies the grounds, namely that the disputed domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark for which the complainant has rights, that the respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the disputed domain name, and that the disputed domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith. These grounds are cumulative: all must be proved for the complaint to succeed. The remedy sought must be specified, usually transfer of the disputed domain name. The owner of the disputed domain name is required to file a response within 20 days. A proper response includes documentary proof attesting to the owner’s rights or good-faith adoption. In the absence of a response, the panel will adjudicate the dispute irrespective whether the owner has filed a response.
