    This study illustrates that the majority of the cases in which there is a default were correctly decided in favor of the trademark owner because the respondent knew it had registered the domain name in bad faith and failed to put up a defense. Sure, there have been plenty of bad cases decided, but the vast majority of decisions seem to reached the correct result.

    Don't scrap the system.

    UDRP is bull* propaganda

    There are several things which Professor Michael Geist and all the 'good guys' fail to acknowledge. Including:

    The DNS is not a trademark system, ask the creator Paul Mockapetris. Indeed, it currently cannot be used as such - because of free speech and unfair competition issues.

    They know solution and could stop 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' and 'passing off' - if they really wanted to. Please visit WIPO.org to see.

    UDRP gives priority to one trademark over all others who share the same word(s) or initials. For example, the World Trade Organization (WTO) shares its initials with six trademarks - in the U.S. alone. They violate unfair competition law.
