Domain Disputes New Rules

Forum is announcing a few changes to its UDRP and other Supplemental Rules, to more align with current processes as a result of GDPR and other privacy issues and to address some reoccuring procedural issues encountered in the past:

  • Rule 1(d) will be changed to reflect the current practice of requiring the amendment of the complaint to include the registration information received from the registrar;
  • Rule 5 will be amended to similarly rely upon the Respondent’s email address as provided by the Registrar;
  • Rule 7 regarding additional submissions will be amended to reflect the practice of other providers and removes the additional submission fee;
  • Finally, the fee schedule will be amended to increase the filing fee by $30 for each filing.
