Cases are up, but so are domain registrations.
ICANN has published data about the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and asked for community feedback.
The report examines the history of UDRP, trends, and opinions from both IP interests and domain owners.
ICANN’s calculated that the number of UDRP cases has been growing by 6% per year on average since 2013. But it also noted that cases are filed against a tiny percentage of registered domains, as shown in this chart in which you can’t even see the column for UDRP cases:
ICANN figured that Complainants won 78% of cases, but this number is low because it doesn’t consider settled and withdrawn cases. If you look at the number of cases decided, it’s around 92% in favor of Complainants.
The report also notes that reverse domain name hijacking cases are rising, with RDNH findings in 2% of all cases.
