Expert determinations & summaries
Read previous determinations and summaries on dispute resolution service complaints for the .nz domain namespace.
The Domain Name Commission publishes all the Dispute Resolution Decisions on the New Zealand Legal Information Institute website.
Follow the link to see and search our Dispute Resolution Decisions.
We publish the full-length decisions at NZLII Database. We know that the legal community is appreciative of these resources, but whilst the database is open to anyone to access, we have received feedback that we should make the content more accessible.
So, we publish case summaries on our website as a further step towards providing a better understanding of how experts make their determinations and how the dispute resolution service policy applies practically to domain disputes.
The case summaries are organised into five different categories, reflecting the policy requirements: complainant’s rights; degree of name similarity; unfair registration; CMD (confusing, misleading, or deceiving); cyber or typosquatting.
In addition to these categories, you are also able to filter the summaries to see those where a transfer of the disputed domain name has been ordered or a complaint has been dismissed.
