Subject: Re: Dispute resolution


dotLaw, Inc. agrees that appropriate resolution of domain name conflicts will be central to the smooth operation of the .law domain. As you point out, this will extend down to registration issues at  lower level domain names as well. We have put a lot of thought into this issue but space here will only permit a brief summary of our thoughts on this subject.

Like all registrars and registries we adhere to the general framework of the already published Uniform Dispute Resolution Policies (UDRP) as noted in our application. We have also retained the Latham and Watkins law firm of California specifically for their prior experience in managing domain name conflict resolution. They have found that when handled properly, most domain name disputes can be resolved without legal recourse.  The .law Domain Advisory Board will also have a large role to play both in setting the initial .law registration policies as well as advising on potential solutions when conflicts arise. When registration lawsuits inevitably arise, then Latham and Watkins are eminently qualified to move the matter to a suitable conclusion. A domain name "arbitration board" will only be developed if these measures prove to be inadequate for the resolution of registration conflicts.

Respectfully submitted,
dotLaw, Inc.
