Trademark Post-Delegation Dispute Resolution Procedure(Trademark PDDRP)
In the New Generic Top-Level Domain Program (New gTLD Program), a formal procedure that generally addresses a registry operator's alleged complicity in trademark infringement on the first or second level of a new gTLD.
Disputes resolved by a Trademark PDDRP are administered by Dispute Resolution Service Providers approved by ICANN. Complainants are required to take specific steps to address their issues before filing a formal complaint. An expert panel determines whether a registry operator is liable and recommends remedies to ICANN.
