Managing Domain Name Disputes in a Transforming Cyberspace  

SFC Launch


The current rising trend in e-commerce has led to an increase in the number of domain name registration worldwide. In Malaysia, as of September 2017, there was a total of 327,109 ".my" domain names registered. With the implementation of ICANN's generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) programme, hundreds of new gTLDs are now up and running in the cyberspace. The best way to tackle online infringements in relation to these new gTLDs has become a matter of great concern to many intellectual property (IP) rights owners. In order to settle such disputes in a more resourceful manner than litigation, a party may turn to an alternative solution offered by the Domain Name Dispute Resolution (DNDR) providers, such as KLRCA.

Asia No Longer "Third" to Third Party Funding - Meets the Financing World of Arbitration (Kshama Loya Modani & Vyapak Desai)

Access to justice laid the foundation stone for third party funding (TPF) in litigation, nearly seven centuries ago. while TPF has attained sufficient degree of stability in the United Kingdom (UK), Australia, United States of America (USA) and few European countries, it is gaining momentum in Asia. Traction, however, is being seen in the realm of arbitration as against traditional litigation. On January 9, 2017, Singapore accorded statutory recognition to TPF in international arbitration subject to regulation. In Hong Kong, consultation on TPF for arbitration has culminated into a report of the Law Commission on October 12, 2016, recommending TPF in Hong Kong- seated arbitration and services provided in Hong Kong for foreign-seated arbitration. Commercial eyes are set on Hong Kong as it endeavors to open doors to TPF in 2017.
