Disputes and complaints are a feature of domain name systems around the world – from cybersquatting and typosquatting, through to fraudulent and other bad faith registrations.
In Australia, there are a number of processes to deal with the various types of complaints and disputes that arise in relation to .au domain name registration. These include lodging a complaint with auDA about breach of .au policy rules; lodging a complaint under the .au Dispute Resolution Policy (auDRP), an independent mechanism for dealing with disputes between two parties with competing rights in a name; or taking private legal action in the courts.
If you’re in Melbourne on Tuesday 6th October, there is the opportunity to participate in a workshop discussion about domain complaints / disputes at the Australian Internet Governance Forum (auIGF).
The auIGF is proudly presented and hosted by .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) – and it runs for two days (Tuesday and Wednesday).
” You’ve got my domain name! ” Dispute resolution in the .au domain.
3:15pm – 4:45pm; Tuesday 6th October / Fairmont 2, Park Hyatt, Melbourne.
The workshop panel comprises the following very experienced people (plus me to add my 2 bob’s worth!). 🙂
