Domain Name Dispute Resolution for .eu Domains (UDRP)
.eu is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of the European Union. It is administered by the European Registry of Internet Domain Names (EURid). The .eu Alternative Dispute Settlement Rules (ADR) apply to .eu domain name disputes. The Czech Arbitration Court (CAC) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) are responsible for resolving disputes about .eu domains.
Although the structure of .eu ADR is similar to the UDRP, the following differences should be noted:
- While the UDRP is limited to the protection of trademark rights, the .eu ADR address both trademark rights and certain other rights protected in the EU, e.g. geographical indications, designations of origin; unregistered trademarks, company names, distinguishing features of protected literary and artistic works, provided they are protected under national law.
- According to the .eu ADR, the complainant has to prove that either the registration or the use of the domain name by the registrant was done in bad faith. According to the UDRP, both must be proven.
