The Basics
The ERDRP (Eligibility Requirements Dispute Resolution Policy) applies to registered Internet domain names with a .name extension and defensive registrations that prevent registration of domain names with a .name extension. Complainants who can claim trademark rights in the disputed domain name may also choose to utilize the provisions of the UDRP (see ERDRP Policy Para. 1). The ERDRP is sponsored by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

The ERDRP may apply to Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs).

Rules and Fees
Together, the ERDRP Rules and the FORUM’s ERDRP Supplemental Rules govern disputes falling under the scope of the ERDRP. For cases filed before 01/01/06, please refer to previous versions of the FORUM’s ERDRP Supplemental Rules.

The fee schedule for the FORUM’s ERDRP domain name dispute services can be found in its ERDRP Supplemental Rules, Rule 17 (Fees).
