    Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) ICANN UDRP decisions unavailable
    posted by michael on Friday January 02 2004, @11:06AM

    Jan writes "While looking to get access to some recent UDRP decisions on the ICANN Site, to be precise at:
    Search Decisions in Proceedings Under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy
    Search Index of Proceedings Under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy
    I found that the actual decision text is not accessible anymore. I tried like 20 of them and I get either a 404 or "Page could not be displayed" error.

    Is this another step towards making the decisions more transparent?

    Jan van der Reis

    [Editor's note: I tried a couple of random searches, and they worked for me, so I asked for a specific example, and was directed to
    1. go to http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrpdec.htm,
    2. Search for whoiswhoinamerica
    3. Click on first result of the search
    This produced http://www.cpradr.org/ICANNDecisionCPR004-000912.htm which indeed produces a 404. (Although the decision can be found via google at http://www.cpradr.org/ICANN/icannDecisionCPR004-000912.htm.) So it does seem there's a bug of some sort in ICANN's scripts, or the providers have been moving files around (which would be a bad thing in itself -- they should have stable URLs). -mf]

    I'm guessing this is mostly (though not entirely) the fault of CPR rather than ICANN. Try looking for CPR case number CPR 0310 (jrc.com). ICANN sends you to a broken link [cpradr.org]). If you try accessing the decision directly from CPR's index [cpradr.org], you get a different URL [cpradr.org] - but it too is a broken link. As far as I can tell this decision currently isn't posted anywhere on CPR's site. (And for whatever reason, there are very few pages from CPR's site available at the Internet Archive [archive.org] -- including only three UDRP decisions [archive.org].)

    Under the rules of the UDRP, the dispute provider is required to make decisions accessible via the web.

    But, hey, it's just an ICANN rule. It's not as if it means anything to anyone.
