  • ICANN Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy

    What kind of a situation would require use of the official ICANN Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy? Maybe, say, if one person took over someone else's domain, or 2 people tried to register for the same domain name at roughly the same time?

    Examples
    The UDRP process has already been used in a number of well-known cases, such as Madonna Ciccone, p/k/a Madonna v. Dan Parisi and "Madonna.com". In this case, the arbitration panel found against the defendant registrant based on all three of the above factors and ordered the domain name turned over to Madonna.

    Often there is contention over similar but not identical domain names, in which the offended party files a court action claiming trademark or copyright infringement. For example, actor Robert De Niro has claimed ownership of all domain names incorporating the text "Tribeca" for domain names with any content related to film festivals. In particular, he has a dispute with the owner of the website tribeca.net
