Doug Isenberg of The GigaLaw Firm presented an update to the annual meeting of domain name panelists at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva, Switzerland, on November 2, 2015.
Doug's presentation, titled "New gTLDs: URS and UDRP," provided attendees with important insights into the new Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) and how the new generic top-level domain names are impacting domain name disputes.
The WIPO meeting was attended by nearly 100 domain name panelists from around the world, representing 26 countries.
Doug serves as a WIPO domain name panelist, where he regularly issues decisions under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). He also serves as a domain name panelist at three other dispute providers, including as a URS panelist at the Forum (formerly the National Arbitration Forum), where he wrote some of the first decisions under the new URS policy.
In addition to serving as a panelist, Doug frequently represents trademark owners in domain name disputes and transactions.
