I must have misunderstood the thrust of your post. I was under the
impression that Eric's original post *was* making the point that 80% of the
cases resulted in claimant victory... In any case, the relevant excerpt
from the article link I posted reads as follows:
"UDRP does appear to favor
trademark owners. In a recent
report, Professor Milton Mueller, of
Syracuse University School of
Information Studies, analyzed three
of the four groups authorized to
arbitrate domain name disputes. He
found trademark owners, who are
the only ones permitted to file a
complaint under UDRP, won 80
percent of the time."
