All ICANN-accredited registrars follow a uniform dispute resolution
policy. Under that policy, disputes over entitlement to a domain-name
registration are ordinarily resolved by court litigation between the
parties claiming rights to the registration. Once the court rules who
is entitled to the registration, the registrar will implement that
ruling. In disputes arising from registrations allegedly made abusively
(such as "cybersquatting" and cyberpiracy"), the uniform policy
provides an expedited administrative procedure to allow the dispute to
be resolved without the cost and delays often encountered in court
litigation. In these cases, you can invoke the administrative procedure
by filing a complaint with one of the dispute-resolution service
providers listed at http://www.icann.org/udrp/approved-providers.htm.
