Public Comment: Preliminary Issue Report on the Current State of the UDRP

27 May 2011

ICANN Staff is seeking comments on its Preliminary Issue Report on the Current 
State of the Uniform Dispute Resolution 
 [PDF, 2.25 MB]. The public 
 period ends on 15 July 2011.


Created in 1999, the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) has successfully 
offered parties a less expensive alternative to costly litigation for resolving 
disputes involving domain name cybersquatting. The UDRP has not been formally 
reviewed by the GNSO Council since its inception. This Report informs the GNSO 
Council of the current state of the UDRP in advance of the Council's vote on 
whether to commence a policy development process (PDP) on this important policy.

Specifically, this Report addresses:

 *   How the UDRP has addressed the problem of cybersquatting to date, and any 
insufficiencies or inequalities associated with the process.
 *   Whether the definition of cybersquatting inherent within the existing UDRP 
language needs to be reviewed or updated.

This is an opportunity for the ICANN community to provide its views on the 
current state of the UDRP, and on whether a policy development process should 
be initiated to review the UDRP. This Report will be updated to reflect such 
feedback in the Final Issue Report to be presented to the GNSO Council after 
the closing of this public comment forum.
