Abstract: The proliferation of the Internet has led to an explosion in the number of registered domain names. With the ‘.com’ burst, there has been an increase in the number of domain name disputes leading to an anarchy in this special branch of intellectual property. ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) is an international dispute resolution procedure that enables trademark holders to challenge the registrant of an Internet domain name, bring the name to binding arbitration and, if the challenge is successful, gain control of the name. The policy was defined in October 1999 and the first case was decided in December 1999. Since then, UDRP has gone a long way in resolving domain name disputes. However, an analysis of the decided cases under the UDRP regime tells a different story. The present paper critically analyses some of those decided cases and also highlights the lacunae in the UDRP and also provides some suggestions for the improvement of UDRP.
