The evolving nature of the domain name registration system (DNS) is causing growing concern for trademark owners around the world, leading to a large number of cases filed with the Center under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP), and an increasing demand for training in this area. The Workshop will pay particular attention to the numerous developments in relation to UDRP decision precedent. Further info: http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/events/
Invitations: The target audience for this Workshop includes practitioners who already have some experience with the UDRP through case filing or previous Workshops, as well as those who may become involved in UDRP proceedings. Registrars and ccTLD administrators may also take this opportunity to increase their knowledge of the UDRP process and current issues in the Domain Name System.
