Study Finds Bias in Internet domain name dispute resolution
 (Convergence Center, Syracuse University news release) 9Nov
 http://dcc.syr.edu/udrpnews.htm
The international method of resolving disputes over Internet domain names
favors trademark holders over those seeking to register an Internet site,
according to a study by researchers at Syracuse University's School of
Information Studies. The study was released Nov. 9 by the school's
Convergence Center. While the guidelines developed by ICANN are "robust and
fair," both the interpretation of the guidelines and a clause that allows
trademark holders to shop around for the most favorable arbitrators has
resulted in a system that is biased against Internet domain name
registrants, says Milton Mueller, professor and director of the Convergence
Center.
