The Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre (ADNDRC) at the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) announced during Hong Kong Arbitration Week (which took place during the week of 15 to 20 October 2017) that it will shortly launch a Guide to HKIAC Domain Name Dispute Resolution (the "Guide").
The ADNDRC was founded by HKIAC in 2002 and has operated as the Hong Kong Office of ADNDRC since this date. It is the first ICANN accredited Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) provider in Asia providing not only UDRP services but also “ccTLD” dispute resolution services in relation to “.hk”, ".香港" (Hong Kong); ".cn", ".中国" (China); and ".ph" (Philippines) domain extensions.
The guide is essential reading for those interested in domain name dispute resolution in Asia. The 40 page booklet covers all aspects of domain name dispute resolution procedures in Asia from the most basic to the more substantive issues and includes case law and statistics.
It also includes a section on dispute resolution for domain names comprising Chinese or pinyin characters as well as those comprising translations of or abbreviations of trademarks.
The Guide will soon be available for downloading at the following link.
Further information on this subject is also available at.
