Domain Dispute Resolution for Top Level Domains (URS)
URS (Uniform Rapid Suspension System) is an inexpensive and fast out-of-court dispute settlement procedure. It is even faster and more cost-effective than the UDRP (Uniform Domain name Dispute Resolution Policy) procedure.
However, with URS, it is not (primarily) about the deletion or transfer of the infringing domain. But it grants trademarks to owners a right to the suspension (cancellation) of the content available under the domain. In a second step, it may be possible to gain possession of the domain, but this is not possible directly in the URS procedure.
