The set of rules that regulate the Domain Name System (DNS) forms a sprawling discipline, which involves different branches of law: public international law, private international law, comparative law, intellectual property law, competition law, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), etc. A number of issues arise in the context of the constantly changing DNS. A panel of experienced and renowned specialists will attempt to address some of the issues:
Panel 1 Institutional Perspective: What is the role of dispute resolution service providers and how this role has evolved in recent years?
Panel 2 Comparative Perspective: How portions of the DNS law have integrated into domestic law? In this perspective, the cases of France and Germany are particularly interesting.
Panel 3 Perspectives of DNS Governance: The ICANN is a unique and complex structure in DNS governance. What is its role? How this association has evolved? What are new challenges in terms of public order in light of new gLTDs?
