On the UDRP (Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy):
The UDRP is the uniform policy of the world organization ICANN to resolve conflicts through online arbitration involving domain names. Only four resolution centers accredited by ICANN that apply the UDRP, conflict and none of them are in Latin America. Hence the importance of ILCE initiative, which seeks to replicate the experience of these centers, but so glocalized, creating a center for easy access for addressing this kind of conflict in Latin America, tailored to the needs of the region.
Also, this initiative is part of the Regional Programme Electronics resolution ILCE , which leads the development and implementation of agile services aimed at meeting the needs of users and companies in the region regarding disputes arising in Commerce and Electronic Business Online and Mobile and the Digital Economy in the region.
