Cross-Community Session: Review of All Rights Protection Mechanisms in All gTLDs

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

Overview: The GNSO initiated a Policy Development Process in February 2016 to review all the trademark-related rights protection mechanisms (RPMs) that had been developed for gTLDs to date. These are the longstanding Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) from 1999 and the additional RPMs that were created subsequently for the 2012 New gTLD Program Round. This new PDP will review all the RPMs in two phases, starting with the New gTLD RPMs in Phase One and going on to the UDRP in Phase Two. The Working Group that was chartered by the GNSO Council for this effort will need to coordinate its work with that of the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP Working Group and other related efforts, such as the Competition, Consumer Choice and Consumer Trust Review Team.
Who should attend and why: Community members that have an interest in understanding, discussing, and providing feedback to the Working Group on the issues that the PDP should examine and the data that may be needed for a comprehensive and useful review. This session provides Working Group members and audience members the opportunity to discuss the Working Group’s proposed methodology and the issues to be tackled during Phase One of the PDP.
What to expect from this session: This session will be led by the Working Group co-chairs Kathy Kleiman, Philip Corwin and J. Scott Evans, and be supported by ICANN Policy Staff members Mary Wong and David Tait.
This an open session and all are welcome to participate. For further information about this Working Group and the PDP, please see http://gnso.icann.org/en/group-activities/active/rpm.
