Abstract

This study examined whether the presence of a Free Trade Agreement between the United States and a foreign country significantly affected the outcomes of Internet domain name dispute arbitration cases, conducted within the framework of the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy. Data were collected for approximately 2800 arbitration cases filed during the 2001-2019 period from ten countries, five with U.S. FTAs and five without. Therefore, this study sought to examine whether FTAs impact domain name arbitration cases. Logistic regression, with controls for additional variables, found that complainants are less likely to win in FTA countries. Separate analysis of high- and low-income countries found that the complainants’ win percentage is significantly reduced in the high-income countries while there was no impact in in low-income countries.
