The newest issue of GigaLaw’s Domain Dispute Digest (for the third quarter of 2022) shows that trademark owners are continuing to file a record number of complaints under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). I expect this trend to continue, which would result in a ninth-consecutive year of growth in cybersquatting and the largest number of domain name dispute complaints ever filed in a single year.

Specifically, the Digest includes detail data that shows:
  • More than 2,000 UDRP decisions were published in the quarter, an increase of 24.2 percent over the same quarter in the previous year.
  • The number of disputed domain names in those cases rose to almost 4,000, an increase of 18.3 percent.
  • Trademark owners continued to win more than 95 percent of all UDRP decisions, which reinforces the fact that the UDRP remains an incredibly powerful tool to be used against cybersquatters.
