RE: UDRP interim committee
I fully agree with you in both, the relevance of the raw data analysis (it should be interpreted in a proper way by us, though) and the impact on a well defined population of input analysis
The late will be, in my opinion, the roughest task, but agreeing on it will make easier the next steps. Basically we are talking about the 7 constituencies of the DNSO, plus those "not interested on the ICANN process" but involved on the UDRP issues. Would it be appropriate to ask WIPO (an the other three panelists providers) to send this questionaire to al parties involved in UDRP cases?
