Domain Name Disputes in the '.uk' Domain: Practice and Procedure

About the Workshop

The Nominet domain name Dispute Resolution Service has now been in operation for over 10 years. The purpose of this 1-day workshop is to provide a high level, in-depth review of the operation of the service for the benefit of academics, practitioners and domain name registrars and registrants, the end-users. 

This will be the first seminar of its kind dealing in depth with the Nominet DRS, which is now handling on average as many as 60 disputes per month. It is a ‘must’ for anyone with a serious interest in the procedure. 


  • Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) and its history – (circumstances leading to the introduction of the DRS and its development)
  • First Element – (the criteria needed to get a complaint off the ground)
  • Second Element – (domain name registration with abusive intent and abusive use of the domain name)
  • Defences
  • Common procedural issues
  • The work of the Nominet Team
  • Domain Name Disputes and the Courts

The programme has been organised in partnership with UCL with participation from The Rt Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob and The Rt Hon. the Lord Neuberger.
