PDP - IGO Domain Name Dispute Resolution Procedure

Last Updated: 9 June 2014

Archived Project 2007

Summary:

This issue was started at the request of the GNSO Council, in response to a resolution of the Council on 24 May 2007, to provide a report on a draft IGO Domain Name Dispute Resolution Procedure, primarily foreseen for new gTLDs, as a first step following Council discussions on the "GNSO Issues Report on Dispute Handling for IGO Names and Abbreviations".

The protection of IGO names and abbreviations is foreseen in the new gTLD process, with an objections-based approach for strings at the top-level, and a dispute resolution process (DRP) for domain names at the second (and if applicable, third) levels. Staff development work focused on drafting a separate DRP for the second level. The objections-based approach for new gTLD top-level strings was part of a broader development task for objections-based dispute resolution procedures for top-level strings that were under development by ICANN staff with the assistance of outside counsel.
