 There is an apparent need for more straightforward,​ inexpensive procedures for resolving disputes between domain name Registrants and third parties about entitlement to register and use domain names. A WIPO report in 1999 entitled //The Management of Internet Names and Addresses: Intellectual Property Issues// ​ recommended the introduction of mandatory and uniform procedures for resolving disputes about names registered in the gTLDs. Acceptance of this recommendation led to development of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). This policy was approved by ICANN in October 1999 and entered into force on 1 January 2000. There is an apparent need for more straightforward,​ inexpensive procedures for resolving disputes between domain name Registrants and third parties about entitlement to register and use domain names.

 +Where the second registrant can establish a right and legitimate interest in the domain name under paragraph 4(c) of the UDPR, it is likely that the domain name has not been registered in bad faith. Circumstances which indicate that the domain name has not been registered in bad faith include the honest use of the domain name in connection with an offering of goods or services, the registrant of the second domain name being commonly known by the domain name or the legitimate and non-commercial use of the domain name without the intent to divert the consumer or tarnish the name or trademark in question. ​
