What are some of the popular misconceptions about the UDRP?

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"It has also been said the bias is endemic because the panelists are drawn from the trademark bar. This too does not bear scrutiny. This is not to say there aren’t some anomalies among decisions that come down; the regret here is that there is no administrative appeal from these decisions. There is, incidentally, an appeal mechanism under the URS, but so far ICANN has not amended the UDRP to provide for appeals".

Reminders:
  • Trademarks should submit their datas into the Trademark Clearinghouse to participate in future Sunrise Periods. The official TMCH calendar is available here;
  • For a better recognition, Trademark clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
