Disputes, more disputes and ever more disputes in 2016!

April 10, 2017

Domain name disputes reached record levels in 2016 according to newly released WIPO data. Trademark owners filed a record number of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policies (UDRP) with WIPO in 2016. This marks an increase of 10% over the previous year and is partly due to the fact that over 1200 new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) are now in existence.

66% of disputes related to “.com” extensions, down 5% on 2015. Disputes relating to new gTLDs accounted for 16% of cases filed at WIPO with the most common new extensions disputed being “.xyz”, “.top” and “.club”. Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) accounted for 14% of WIPO cases with 74 national registries preferring the WIPO dispute resolution service over other similar services.

WIPO cases in 2016 involved parties from 109 countries. The United States had the highest number of cases filed (895) followed by France (466) and Germany (273). Among the top filing countries, France saw the highest increase (38%) in cases filed.

As well as having the highest number of cases filed, the United States also had the highest number of respondent cases (680) followed by China (473) and the United Kingdom (179).

The highest number of cases were filed by Philip Morris (67), followed by AB Electrolux (51) and Hugo Boss, Lego and Michelin with 42 cases each.
