WIPO surpasses one hundred cybersquatting cases

The WIPO’s Arbitration and Mediation Center has received the 100th WIPO case under the dispute resolution policy for the .CN and the Asian giant for Top-Level Domain disputes. This milestone has been reached only two years after becoming the only non-Chinese entity granted the right to provide this service.

WIPO’s designation as service provider started on August 1, 2019, through a “Letter of Authorization” presented by the Director General of China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC). The top complainant sectors in these cases have ranged from Internet and IT, Fashion, and Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals to Banking and Finance, Electronics as well as Heavy Industry and Machinery. In more than 96 % of WIPO cases, the complainants prevailed.

“This filing milestone is another reminder of the need for continuing vigilance by trademark owners against abusive domain name registrations,” says WIPO Director General Daren Tang.
