WIPO Domain Name Dispute Resolution Service process
Has anyone been through it?

A big company wants a domain name I have registered, and they are trying to get it through the WIPO Domain Name Dispute Resolution Service.

This is new territory for me. I don't care about the domain, but the process might be educational. Does anyone know? If it doesn't cost me anything I figure it will be a good learning process. Of course, I don't want it to cost me anything.

Well, I might start the analysis with the idea that your post - here - is a public disclosure of your thinking and anything you say may be used against you in a possible follow-on civil lawsuit for money damages under the anti-cybersquatting law.

The fact that you announced "I don't care about the domain" could serve to show that your domain registration intentions were not pure and might add to a case for "special damages".

That said, anyone care to shed some light based upon their participation in their process?

Crimson, have you read the WIPO procedural statements? That would be the best place to start, so why don't you take an hour to read about the process and report back what you have learned?

Well as far as costs are concerned you would only need to pay a fee if you requested a three member panel instead of the usual single member panel. The fee in this case would be split equally between yourself and the complainant. The single member panel fee is is charged to the complainant.
