New gTLDs Create Anticipation
Some of the panelists at the session have already issued UDRP or URS decisions affecting new gTLDs. The most common issue in these cases is the lack of content on the websites in question since the domains haven’t been registered for very long and it’s sometimes a challenge to determine if they have truly been registered and used in bad faith. However, it was unanimously expected that cybersquatting in the new gTLD space will increase and that panelists will, as a result, see more and more of these cases.
