Section I: Description, Explanation, and Purpose

ICANN Staff is seeking comments on its Preliminary Issue Report on the Current 
State of the Uniform Dispute Resolution 
 [PDF, 2.25 MB]. 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.

The Preliminary Issue 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.

This Public Comment solicitation represents 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 
Preliminary Issue Report will be updated to reflect community feedback 
submitted through this forum. A Final Issue Report will then be presented to 
the GNSO Council for its consideration.

Section II: Background

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.
