1 March 2013

Forum Announcement: Comment Period Opens on Date: 1 March 2013
Categories/Tags: Second-Level Domains
Purpose (Brief):

ICANN is opening a public comment forum to receive comment on the Arab Center for Domain Name Dispute Resolution's revised proposal to serve as one of the official dispute resolution service providers for the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

The ACDR is jointly established by the Arab Intellectual Property Mediation and Arbitration Society (AIPMAS) and the Arab Society for Intellectual Property (ASIP), with headquarters in Amman, Jordan and additional offices in other Arab Countries. Both the AIPMAS (established in 1987) and ASIP promote the activities of the Arab Center of Mediation and Arbitration, established in 2003, active in resolving conflicts related to intellectual property through international arbitrators. If approved, the ACDR would be the first Approved UDRP Dispute Resolution Service Provider headquartered in an Arab state.

The ACDR's earlier proposal was previously posted for comment. ICANN now seeks input on the revisions, to assist ICANN in determining if this proposal is ripe for Board approval.
