Chapter 19: The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP): not quite arbitration, but satisfying?

Ilhyung Lee


The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) provides for an extrajudicial method of resolving disputes between registrants of domain names and trademark holders who allege cybersquatting.

This chapter highlights the similarities and distinctions between a proceeding in arbitration and one under the UDRP. Ultimately, when a party alleges that an internet domain name infringes on its trademark rights, the UDRP method is an option that should be considered.
