Australian domain administrator to present dispute decisions overview



Peter Leung, Hong Kong


The auDA, the administrator of the .au domain space, will present its overview of auDRP decisions next week

The auDA is the policy authority that oversees the auDRP, the domain dispute resolution proceedings adapted from the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). On August 27, the auDA will present its first overview of how the various auDRP panels have ruled on various legal and procedural issues. The official launch will take place as part of the Australian Internet Governance Forum in Melbourne.

The overview will cover over 300 decisions, starting from August 1 2002.

The result of the auDRP overview, which follows the format of WIPO’s UDRP overview, is already available online. The overview covers several topics, including how panels have ruled on legal issues pertaining to elements of establishing a claim under the UDRP. Some questions include whether a complainant is required to prove that the respondent lacks rights or legitimate interests in the domain name, and when will an offer to sell, rent or otherwise transfer the domain name to another person constitute bad faith. The overview also looks at procedural issues such as whether multiple complainants can bring a single consolidated complaint against a respondent.

Andrew F Christie of Melbourne Law School authored the overview, with assistance from James Gloster, Jeffry Kadarusman and Daniel Lau.

Courts grapple with scope of patent protection

The Supreme Court’s decision in Actavis v Eli Lilly introduced a doctrine of equivalents and arguably also established a doctrine of prosecution history estoppel in the UK. We look at the law across Europe, and the impact the decision might have. Kingsley Egbuonu, Michael Loney and James Nurton set the scene
