Section I: Description, Explanation, and Purpose

ICANN Staff is seeking comments on its Preliminary Issue Report on the Current State of the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy<http://gnso.icann.org/issues/prelim-report-current-state-udrp-27may11-en.pdf> [PDF, 2.25 MB]. Specifically, this Report addresses:

 *   How the UDRP has addressed the problem of cybersquatting to date and any insufficiencies or inequalities associated with the process.
 *   Whether the definition of cybersquatting inherent within the existing UDRP language needs to be reviewed or updated.

The Preliminary Issue Report informs the GNSO Council of the current state of the UDRP in advance of the Council's vote on whether to commence a Policy Development Process (PDP) on this important policy.

This Public Comment solicitation represents an opportunity for the ICANN community to provide its views on the current state of the UDRP and on whether a Policy Development Process should be initiated to review the UDRP. This Preliminary Issue Report will be updated to reflect community feedback submitted through this forum. A Final Issue Report will then be presented to the GNSO Council for its consideration.

Section II: Background

Created in 1999, the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) has successfully offered parties a less expensive alternative to costly litigation for resolving disputes involving domain name cybersquatting. The UDRP has not been formally reviewed by the GNSO Council since its inception.
