The DNSO Task Force tasked with recommending changes to the UDRP has published a questionnaire for public input; the Task Force is asking folks to fill out the questionnaire online, and then click "submit" on the bottom of the page. Responses are due by December 17. So far, not a lot of people seem to know that the survey exists, although an announcement has gone out to ga members, and the URL is being circulated within interested groups such as INTA (the International Trademark Association) and AIPLA (a United States intellectual property lawyers' group).
Various folks have criticized the survey format. Question 13 is particularly odd: It asks whether complainant, respondent, both or neither should choose the dispute resolution provider. The form, though, only allows people filling out the form to mark a number (one through five) beside each choice. It's not clear whether one marks "one," or "five," or what, besides one's favored selection.
If you don't submit your views now, though, don't complain when it turns out that only trademark lawyers responded.
