This Public Comment proceeding is intended to gather input from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) community on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) itself and the data and analysis included in the Policy Status Report. The UDRP, which is an ICANN consensus policy, was created to provide a quick, efficient, and more cost-effective way to facilitate trademark protection at the second level of the Domain Name System.

The UDRP Policy Status Report (PSR) provides an overview of the UDRP to support the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) in assessing of the effectiveness of the UDRP in meeting its intended purposes. It includes background on the UDRP processes and procedures, publicly available and general data on UDRP complaints and decisions, and brief analyses. By collating this data, the PSR is intended to serve as input to UDRP-related review efforts and to support data-driven policy making, such as the Review of all Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) in All gTLDs Policy Development Process (PDP).

The UDRP PSR is organized to help the GNSO assess the effectiveness of the UDRP in terms of:

  • Efficiency: Does the UDRP provide trademark holders with a quick and cost-effective mechanism for resolving domain name disputes?
  • Fairness: Does the UDRP allow all relevant rights and interests of the parties to be considered and ensure procedural fairness for all concerned parties?
  • Addressing Abuse: Has the UDRP effectively addressed abusive registrations of domain names?

@GeorgeK May we know your input on this?

More than a month to read and reply to it, but ICANN has repeatedly shown they will ignore input that disagrees with their predetermined results. See, for example, my extensive comments (54 pages long, taking a considerable amount of time to prepare) on the IGO PDP:


which it appears will be completely ignored, despite being superior to the working group's output.

Perhaps a 2-word response "F*CK ICANN" is appropriate, given they essentially say "F*CK REGISTRANTS" with every breath they take.
