CIRA looking for CDRP Feedback

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is conducting a consultation on the CIRA Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (CDRP). This policy, launched in 2002, is a forum which is intended to provide quick, out-of-court arbitrations at relatively low cost for .CA domain names registered in bad faith. The overall purpose of this consultation is to obtain feedback from interested parties on the effectiveness of the CDRP, and to determine whether this Policy continues to meet the needs of its stakeholders. To this end, CIRA has engaged the services of The Strategic Counsel, a national public opinion and marketing research firm, to manage the open consultation process.

CIRA would appreciate your participation in this consultation. The consultation consists of specific questions in areas which CIRA believes input is important, although you are free to submit additional comments on any areas that you wish relating to the CDRP.

You can access the consultation at http://survey.openvenue.com/CIRA_CDRPConsultation

The consultation is open from June 9, 2010 to September 17, 2010. Following the close of the consultation period, submissions will be posted on CIRA's website. CIRA will use the submissions in updating the Policy to meet the needs of its various stakeholders.

Please note that all your answers and comments will be published on CIRA's website after the public consultation has concluded, unless you clearly indicate that you wish them to be confidential.

If you would like more information on this consultation or the current CIRA Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (CDRP), please visit the CIRA website or you may contact CIRA at 1-877-860-1411.
