This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the UDRP), a mechanism that sets out the legal framework for resolving domain name disputes in generic top-level domains (gTLDs) (e.g., .com, .net, .org, .biz), as well as a limited number of country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) (e.g., .cc, .co, .me).
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the UDRP, WIPO will be hosting a conference at its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday, October 21, 2019. The event will discuss relevant internet developments, UDRP jurisprudence, and look ahead to the future of the UDRP and its ability to address evolving bad faith registrations.
The event also provides an opportunity for brand owners, trademark practitioners, party counsel, academics, registrars, ccTLD administrators, and other domain name and Internet stakeholders to meet and discuss the challenges they face.
We welcome the chance to celebrate the success of the UDRP and look forward to meeting you there!
