Domain Name Disputes Post-GDPR: Navigating URS, UDRP, ACPA With Reduced Access to Information
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide IP counsel on the impact of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on domain name dispute mechanisms and access to accurate WHOIS. The panel will examine the domain name dispute process in light of reduced access to information that has been traditionally used. The panel will also discuss developing and implementing a successful domain name enforcement strategy considering the restraints of the GDPR, the reaction to it by most ICANN registrars, and potential next steps to fix the WHOIS problem.
- Impact of GDPR on domain name dispute resolution mechanisms
- Navigating the domain name dispute process
- Domain name enforcement strategies in a GDPR world
- Potential next steps to fix the GDPR/WHOIS problem
The panel will review these and other important issues:
- What impact does the GDPR and overinclusion have on domain name disputes?
- What alternatives do IP owners have for identifying and investigating malicious domains and infringers?
- How do the changes ICANN has made to the WHOIS/RDDS system impact mark owners' ability to navigate the URS, UDRP, and ACPA?
