The administrative procedure for resolving disputes about .au domain names that contain another’s trade mark, the auDRP, has been operating since the early 2000s.  This seminar reported the results of a detailed quantitative study of every one of the 470 determinations made in the procedure’s first 15 years of operation.  It identified the characteristics of each case and its decision-maker, and analysed which of those characteristics are associated with particular outcomes.  The study provided statistically valid answers to questions such as whether the success rate of cases varies according to the nature of the IP right on which it is based, the service provider with which it is filed, and the panelist by whom it is decided.
