ITM and CAC prepare handbook on alternative dispute resolution in EU domain disputes

ITM LogoA handbook developed over several months, in which Prof. Hoeren and his team have analyzed hundreds of decisions and summarized them in a systematic overview, now provides a remedy. The subject of the overview is not only recurring procedural issues. Rather, the issues of the legitimate interests of the claimant and defendant, the risk of confusion and malicious domain registration are also dealt with. Finally, the handbook provides a structured overview of the arbitration commissions’ decision-making trends to date.

The handbook therefore provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of key procedural issues for the first time since the EU domain came into existence and is intended to help both applicants and opponents to answer important questions of interpretation. The manual is available to all interested parties here.
