National Arbitration Forum Prepares for Uniform Rapid Suspension System as 2012 UDRP Filings Hold Steady - WSJ.com: "". . . . We were thrilled to be announced as the first URS Provider," said Kristine Dorrain, National Arbitration Forum's Director of Internet and IP Services. "We believe our years of experience handling tens of thousands of UDRP cases, along with our commitment to utilization of technology and fair decision-making, contributed to our selection. We've been working hard to build and enhance the online filing and case management technologies to ensure a fast, hassle-free URS." The URS was billed as cheaper and faster than the UDRP, which typically sees decisions in around 45 days at a price of approximately $1,300. The FORUM plans to offer the URS, which can obtain a suspension in around 20 days, for $375. The FORUM will be posting the Supplemental Rules, FAQs, and demonstrations at http://domains.adrforum.com, as they become available. . . ."
