These include arbitral disputes under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) as well as trademark infringement, anticybersquatting, and reverse domain name hijacking claims in federal and state courts.
