Strategies for International Domain Name Enforcement (reg
What follows is a checklist of issues and a summary of tips
and resources for those involved in international domain
name enforcement. The materials are presented in outline,
rather than discoursive, format. They do not include case
summaries or strategic recommendations. In addition, the
materials presume a basic familiarity with the terminology
of domain name disputes. Useful summaries of nearly every
significant U.S. court decision on internet-trademark

Anyone Using AAA For .us Disputes? - from 
It has been nearly seven months since NeuStar announced the
American Arbitration Association (AAA) as the first dispute
provider for .us. The National Arbitration Forum (NAF)
became the second .us dispute provider on April 10, 2002.
Since then, the NAF has issued 10 .us decisions and 11
other cases are pending. AAA has not posted a list of cases
or decisions and currently refers visitors to NeuStar's
website. So is anyone using them?

In one of the more strangely written decisions to be
released in a while, NAF panelist Tom Arnold ordered the

mogul Percy Miller, better known as Master P. While Arnold
declined to transfer to Miller, he
also refused to transfer and to the Respondent as it had
requested in a counterclaim. Miller, the driving force
behind underground label No Limit Records, had recently
renamed the company New No Limit Records after moving from
Priority to Universal. Warning: This is a difficult
decision to read.

Comments on ICANN Zone Access Policy
Historically, all Internet zones were available to retrieve
using the AXFR protocol without restriction. In earlier
name server implementations, in fact, there was no
provision to limit the distribution of zones to a
restricted set of name servers.
