WIPO End Report on Case Administration under the Afilias Sunrise Registration Challenge Policy for .info

On August 26, 2002, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center completed processing the last of the 15,172 cases received under the Afilias Sunrise Registration Challenge Policy for .info (.info Policy). The .info Sunrise Report provides a resume of the Center's case administration activity under this Policy.

Representing probably the largest one-time domain name dispute resolution project undertaken by a provider, WIPO's administration of these cases has not only served to give effect to the intent of the .info Policy to enforce a pre-registration period for trademark owners, but has also provided the Center with a valuable opportunity to broaden its experience as a dispute resolution service provider.

It is also recalled that one of the selection criteria for new gTLDs by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) was the potential for providing "proof of concept" concerning possible additions to the domain name system and the options for implementing them, including appropriate intellectual property protection. The introduction of any further gTLDs will require careful examination of prior experience with the various options.

The Center has published a similar Report on its case administration under the Start-Up Trademark Opposition Policy for .biz.
