First European Uniform Rapid Suspension System Provider appointed by ICANN

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that it has appointed MFSD Srl, an Italian company, as a provider of Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) services. MFSD becomes the first URS provider, along existing Asian and American providers.

According to ICANN, the URS is a rights protection mechanism that complements the existing Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) by offering a lower-cost, faster path to relief for rights holders experiencing the most clear-cut cases of infringement of their rights in relation to domain names registrations.
