WIPO End Report on Case Administration under the Sunrise Challenge Policy for .mobi and the Premium Name Trademark Application Rules for .mobi

Between September 2006 and March 2007, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center processed 18 challenges under the Sunrise Challenge Policy for .mobi ("Sunrise Policy") and the Rules for Sunrise Challenge Policy ("Sunrise Rules"), and 105 applications under the Premium Name Trademark Application Rules for .mobi ("Premium Name Rules"). The present WIPO Report provides a resume of the Center's administration of challenges under the Sunrise Policy and Rules and of applications under the Premium Name Rules. Both of these mechanisms were created by the Center in collaboration with the .mobi registry operator.

The purpose of this Report is first to provide a historical, legal and statistical overview of this experience and second, where relevant, to help inform future domain name dispute resolution policies and practices. To assist in the latter purpose, the Report also reviews policy and processing issues that were encountered in the course of the administration of the .mobi Sunrise challenges and Premium Name applications. This review may be taken into account in the development and implementation of future domain name dispute resolution policies.

The Center has published similar Reports on its case administration under the Afilias Sunrise Registration Challenge Policy for .info and under the Start-Up Trademark Opposition Policy for .biz.
