- The purpose of this study is to compare and contrast the approaches taken by the Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the Act on Internet Address Resources (AIAR) of Korea in dealing with domain name disputes arising from cybersquatting. By examining the WIPO and the Internet Address Dispute Resolution Committee (IDRC) Panel decisions applying the relevant provisions of the UDRP and the AIAR, respectively, this study aims to shed light on how the UDRP and the AIAR are each designed to handle the myriad of complex issues which occur in connection with cybersquatting.
