WIPO publishes Jurisprudential Overview 3.0 - including over 20 decisions made by Matthew Harris

Jun 7, 2017

The WIPO Overview of WIPO Panel Views on Selected UDRP Questions is the premier global jurisprudential Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy ("UDRP") resource, covers numerous frequently raised key substantive and procedural topics by distilling the collective wisdom of tens of thousands of WIPO domain name cases decided over the span of well over a decade. Hardly a domain name case is filed by trademark counsel or decided by panelists nowadays without consultation of or citation to the WIPO Overview. As the Overview’s last “2.0” edition dates back to 2011, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center has been investing considerable effort in a "from-the-ground-up" update of this jurisprudential resource.

WIPO staff and two preeminent WIPO UDRP panelists have given a timely preview of the WIPO Overview 3.0. Not only will the revised WIPO Overview inform users of updates to UDRP jurisprudence over the five years since its last revision, but it should also establish benchmarks for ICANN’s policy.
