Zak Muscovitch Becomes Domain Name Dispute Panelist

Last week before the Christmas holiday, the Canadian International Internet Dispute Resolution Centre (CIIDRC) announced that Zak Muscovitch was added to its Domain Name Dispute Resolution panel:

This appointment means Zak will serve on UDRP and CDRP panels that come before the CIIDRC. This is noteworthy because quite a few panelists have backgrounds working on behalf of trademark interests or are working at law firms that represent trademark interests in domain name disputes. There are not many domain name dispute panelists who have domain investors as clients.

While most domain name disputes tend to be fairly egregious cases of cybersquatting, there are numerous cases each year involving valuable, investment-grade domain names and overreaching complainants. I know Zak’s integrity will ensure he looks at the merits of each case individually, but his experience with the nuance of domain name investment may help him make observations that other panelists could overlook.

Zak is a highly respected Intellectual Property attorney, and he is an expert in the field of law related to domain names. In addition to his private IP law practice in Canada, Zak currently serves as General Counsel for the ICA.

Congratulations to Zak on this new role.
