VI. ADR

ICANN - EURid presentation

vi adr regulation 874 2004 art 21

Bad faith = to register a domain name

- 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.
  • The results are binding unless court proceedings are initiated within 30 days of the notification of the result

vi adr sunrise adr mechanism 1
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
