ccTLD registries for .AC, .IO, and .SH adopt a slightly modified version of the UDRP

As of June 1, 2020, parties wishing to file a complaint with WIPO concerning a .AC, .IO, or .SH domain name are able to do so using a slightly modified version of the well-known Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP), a global dispute resolution best practice.

Cases filed with WIPO should be submitted in English, and under the relevant modified UDRP variation it is sufficient for the complainant to prove either the registration or the use of the domain name in bad faith (whereas the UDRP requires both to be shown).
