A New Domain Name Dispute Alternative: The Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS)

Sunday, 22nd December 2014

<p>&quot;The<span style="font-family: Merriweather, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px; text-align: justify">&nbsp;</span><em style="font-family: Merriweather, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px; text-align: justify">Uniform Rapid Suspension System</em>&nbsp;<span style="font-family: Merriweather, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px; text-align: justify">(URS) was created as part of ICANN&rsquo;s new gTLD program. A gTLD (generic top-level domain) is the &ldquo;suffix&rdquo; at the end of a domain name, most commonly .com, .org, .info, .biz and .us. Prior to the new gTLD program there were 23 gTLDs in operation.&nbsp; The new gTLD program is expected to result in the launch of approximately 700 additional gTLDs. More than 400 new gTLDs have already been delegated, with the majority of these in operation. The expansion of the gTLD namespace exponentially increases opportunities for cybersquatting, the practice of registering domain names that infringe another&rsquo;s trademark rights. In response to concerns voiced by trademark owners over the expanded namespace, ICANN developed the URS as an alternative to the existing Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). The URS is intended to provide a quicker and cheaper alternative to the UDRP. This article provides an overview of the differences between the URS and the UDRP and offers trademark owners a &ldquo;road map&rdquo; for determining when to consider using the URS instead of the UDRP.&quot;</span></p><p>Select the link to read this article in full.&nbsp;</p>
