4.5 Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy UDRP

Policy to provide a “fast track” resolution process for disputes in Internet cases concerning top-level domain (TDL) names developed by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and implemented by ICANN as the primary dispute resolution procedure.
 

Note:

So far, UDRP provides mechanisms that have significantly reduced cybersquatting. With the introduction of Internationalised Domain Names (IDN), new challenges are expected to occur.
