    - for the purpose of selling

    - to prevent a right holder from registering it

    - for the purpose of disrupting the professional activities of a competitor

    - personal name for which no demonstrable link exists between holder and name

    - …

    Legitimate intrest =

    - Prior to ADR name was used in connection with goods or service

    - Holder has been commonly known by the domain name even in absence of right

    - Holder is making legitimate and non-commercial or fair use of DN without intent to mislead consumers or harm the reputation of rightholder

    VI. ADR REGULATION 874/2004 - art 21

    • ADR enforced through T&C

    • What is an abuse ?

      • When a domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a name (…) on which a right is recognized (…)AND

      • was registered without rights or legitimate interests in the name by its holderORthe domain name has been registered or is being used in bad faith.

    VI. ADRSUNRISE ADR MECHANISM (1)

    • The sunrise ADR is an ADR against a decision of the registry / validation agent

    • The applicant who gets a negative decision, can start ADR against that decision :

      • When the decision is overruled, that applicant will get the name

      • When the decision is confirmed, the process continues (validating the rest of the queue)

    • In case of a positive decision :

      • All applicants lower in the queue will be informed by e-mail

      • They can start ADR against the decision

      • When the decision is overruled, the next in the queue has to be evaluated
