New search tool offers rich analysis include citations and panelist statistics.
A trio of domain name experts has launched UDRP.tools, a new search and analysis tool for cybersquatting cases heard under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).
There are some other good UDRP search tools out there, but UDRP.tools provides unprecedented data views that will be particularly helpful to attorneys. For example, you can see case citations and how individual panelists have decided cases.
Three domain name industry veterans teamed up to create the system. Kevin Ohashi of web host comparison site ReviewSignal and Michael Sumner of domain sales data site NameBio developed the site with the assistance of Nat Cohen.
Sumner provided this use case:
Let’s say you are defending a three-letter dot-com domain. You can not only pull up all LLL.com cases, you can also filter for ones where RDNH was found to mount the strongest possible defense. With the Citations Report you can see which cases those winners cited most frequently, basically giving you the playbook for how they won. But now you need to nominate one of hundreds of panelists to your three-member panel, with the Outcomes Report you can easily see who is most likely to find in your favor based on their past decisions in LLL.com cases.
UDRP.tools includes all cases decided by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), National Arbitration Forum and Czech Arbitration Court.
It’s free to use on a limited basis. Registration is required after five searches in any given day and registration includes 50 non-expiring search credits. Additional credits are available for a fee.
