ICANNs Goals Objectives and Portfolio ShepherdsThe Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) is the longest standing alternative dispute resolution procedure in the domain names system. As a result of the new gTLD Program, several new rights protection mechanisms (RPMs) were introduces: the Uniform Rapid Suspension Dispute Resolution Procedure (URS); the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) and the associated availability through the TMCH of Sunrise periods and the Trademark Claims notification service; and the Post-Delegation Dispute Resolution Procedures (PDDRPs).

The ICANN/GNSO Working Group on the Review of All Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) in All gTLDs was established to assess whether or not the existing RPMs collectively fulfill the purposes for which they were created, or whether additional policy recommendations are needed. oriGIn joined this Working Group with the objective to bring the point of view of GIs, which are not yet considered a valid legal title to activate the rights protection mechanisms in the framework gTLDs disputes.
