Newly Released “Domain Name Arbitration” Book Offers Guide for Navigating UDRP

Domain Name Arbitration: Asserting and Defending Claims of Cybersquatting Under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, by Gerald M. Levine (Publication date print edition August 1, 2015 (558 pages), e-book edition September 1, 2015.)Legal Corner Press, LLC recently announced the publication of Domain Name Arbitration: Asserting and Defending Claims of Cybersquatting Under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, authored by Gerald M. Levine,  intellectual property attorney, with Foreword by Hon. Neil A. Brown QC, former member of the Australian Parliament and a UDRP panelist.

Domain Name Arbitration is described as a hands-on guide for trademark owners and domain name holders to the arbitration process in adjudicating claims and defenses to cybersquatting.

Mr. Levine’s says:

“However important [the immediate similarities and differences are between the UDRP and the ACPA] there is one further difference that is likely to be overlooked by general practitioners and uninitiated parties, which is that the regimes are constructed on different liability models: the UDRP is a conjunctive “and” model; the ACPA is disjunctive “either/or” model. “Intent” is the key element in both, but under the UDRP a trademark owner cannot succeed on its complaint unless it proves the domain name holder both registered the domain name in bad faith and is using it in bad faith.”
