Alternative Domain Dispute Resolution
Yevheniia Bachysh, Cai & Lenard’s Head of the Intellectual Property Team, took part in the WIPO Conference: As the UDRP Turns 20: Looking Back, Looking Ahead.
The Conference was held in Geneva at headquarters of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and was devoted to the 20th anniversary of the domain name dispute resolution rules. The Conference brought together leading experts in domain name dispute settlement to discuss the prospects of domain name dispute resolution by the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center.
The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center is a neutral, international and non-profit dispute resolution provider that offers time- and cost-efficient alternative dispute resolution options. The WIPO Center contributes to the resolution of disputes within a relatively short time frame and requires no substantial budget. The WIPO Center is also the global leader in the provision of domain name dispute resolution services under the WIPO-designed Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.
As Yevheniia noted, the Conference became a great opportunity to discuss all practical aspects of domain name dispute resolution with participants and arbitrators from all over the world as well as the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center’s representatives.
It is to be reminded that WIPO is the global forum for intellectual property (IP) services, policy, information and cooperation. It is a self-funding agency of the United Nations, with 192 member states.
