Despre arbitrajul referitor la numele de domenii. Obligativitatea arbitrajului creeaza precedent?

Nu stiu sa existe statistici cu privire la numarul actiunilor referitoare la domenii .ro sau referitoare la firme romanesti si nici lucrari exhaustive referitoare la acest tip de litigii in care arbitrajul este obligatoriu. Insa cercetarea de mai jos (disponibila integral pe SSRN) este utila  atat pentru cei din domeniu, cat si pentru admiratorii arbitrajului in general.

Andrew F. Christie,  Fiona Rotstein, The Evolution of Precedent in Mandatory Arbitration – Lessons from a Decade of Domain Name Dispute Resolutions, The Arbitrator & Mediator, Vol 30, No. 1, 2011; U of Melbourne Legal Studies Research Paper No. 570. Available at SSRN


In just over a decade, the international system for mandatory arbitration of domain name disputes has disposed of more than 30,000 disputes, between parties from more than 150 countries, in short timeframes and at low cost. Despite the absence of an appellate body and a doctrine of stare decisis, the system has evolved a comprehensive and largely noncontroversial body of precedent, that provides clear guidance to parties on most of the legal and procedural issues involved in a domain name dispute. This paper explores both why and how, exactly, such a sophisticated precedential system has evolved voluntary, and identifies the lessons that may be drawn from this experience for other arbitration systems.
