While the UDRP is an efficient and relatively cost-effective mechanism by which a trademark owner can acquire a domain from a cybersquatter, it is not the only option. This is especially true since the proofs needed to win a UDRP are not the same as those required to win an ACPA federal lawsuit, although similar. If your UDRP Complaint requesting that the domain name be transferred is denied, you can still pursue an ACPA lawsuit for cybersquatting, as long as you do so within the applicable statute of limitations.
Should you be on the receiving end of a UDRP Complaint and lose, you have rights that may be worth pursuing. However, you do need to know that if you lose, you must file a lawsuit in a court of law to stay, or prevent, the domain name from being transferred to the Complainant that prevailed under the UDRP.
The UDRP is a form of adjudication, but as the below excerpt from a known case makes clear, it is no court of law.
