SELECTED UNIFORM DOMAIN NAME
DISPUTE RESOLUTION (UDRP) DECISIONS


Our first mission is the stability of the Internet, so the question becomes
how much diversity do you allow not at the center, but at the bottom on issues
such as the kind of language you allow into domain names
.

The outcomes of proceedings initiated under ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) are anything BUT uniform. This page will grow as we selectively highlight some of the rulings that have achieved Internet community attention. ICANN has established a UDRP Review and Evaluation Task Force. A UDRP Review Questionnaire is posted online in English, French and Spanish.

We also recommend three comprehensive studies of the UDRP:

Other domain name battles taking place through litigation are linked on this website at both the Domain Diaries (for registrant disputes and Court (for registrar and registry litigation) pages. See also ICANN UDRP Review and Evaluation, Terms of Reference.
NOTE: eResolution quit the business in December 2001 accusing its main rival, WIPO, of "tilting" the UDRP process in its favour.
