WIPO Named by ICANN as Exclusive Provider of Dispute Resolution For Trademark Objections To New gTLD’s Strings

Saturday, 18th February 2012

According to a press release out today WIPO  “has been appointed by ICANN as the exclusive provider of dispute resolution services for trademark based ‘pre-delegation’ Legal Rights Objections under ICANN’s New gTLD Program,”

WIPO has a Q&A page on their site about this.

“”The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has embarked on a program of allowing new generic top-level domains on the internet (like .com), an initiative that has worried trademark holders and international organizations. Now the World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center is offering services for trademark holders who wish to challenge proposals for new gTLDs later this year.”

“”WIPO “has been appointed by ICANN as the exclusive provider of dispute resolution services for trademark based ‘pre-delegation’ Legal Rights Objections under ICANN’s New gTLD Program”

Basically WIPO will be handling objections to proposed strings filed by Trademark and other rights holders.

Its not going to be a cheap process to object to a string and it should be a nice revenue source for WIPO.
