Last week, we reported the total number of cases at WIPO, the total number of panelists who heard those cases, broke them down into contested and uncontested and how the panelists reached decisions in each case. Today I will reveal which panelists have been most favorable to Domain Investors and other Respondents faced with a […]
Something very surprising has happened during the last 6 months at WIPO. The number of contested Denials are equal to the number of transfers! In deciding contested claims WIPO panels transferred 90 domains, but also denied 90 claims. Not only that, but there were also 24 findings of RDNH. WIPO used 259 different panelists (compared […]
In our last blog, we reported that out of 1,261 total cases decided by the FORUM in the past 6 months, only 29 Panelists filed Decisions with RICHARD HILL Deciding and reporting almost one case per day. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2022, Mr. HILL alone decided and reported 308 cases of which […]
For a number of years. this Blog has published semi-annually those Panelists at The FORUM and at WIPO who have been the fairest with the least bias against Domain Investors. For the last 6 months, we have recorded every decision by every panelist used by The FORUM with some extremely amazing results. the first thing […]
In Part 1 of this Comprehensive Review, we reported the total number of cases, the total number of panelists who heard those cases, broke them down into contested and uncontested and how the panelists reached decisions in each case. In this Part 2, I will reveal which panelists have been most favorable to Domain Investors […]
As I mentioned in last week’s review of the FORUM Panelists (http:”neusnews.com/2022/07/6-month-comprehensive-forum-review/), there are a number of UDRP Providers, WIPO being the largest and most used. I have, for a number of years, posted semi-annually, the names of the panelists at WIPO who have been the most favorable to Domain Investors and Registrants. However, for […]
The FORUM is the alternative to WIPO, but not as many cases are heard. In fact, for the last 6 months, the FORUM deliberated over 1,120 cases (half the number of WIPO cases), of which 1,022 (91%) were default cases with no response from the registrants. Of the 98 contested cases where Responses had been […]
In spite of the pandemic, or maybe because of it, there were 2,021 complaints heard by WIPO panelists in the past 6 months, and over 4,000 for the year 2021. Of those, 88% were default cases without response from the domain registrants. Interestingly enough, however, 17 of those default cases were denials and 2 of […]
In reviewing 77 contested cases in the last 6 months at the FORUM, I found what I believe to be a few very bad decisions based upon the information provided by the Panelist in his or her Decision. On February 9th, panelist ELENI LAPPA, was the sole panelist in the Complaint filed by Amazon Technologies, […]
The two largest providers for UDRP claims are WIPO and the FORUM. However, while WIPO published 2,050 decisions in the last 6 months, FORUM only had 697, of which 620 (89%) were uncontested. Of the 77 contested cases, only 29 (38%) were Denied. Interestingly, however, this is almost the same percentage of Denials that were […]
