Australian domain administrator to present dispute decisions overview

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.
