You establish trademark rights by showing that you were the first to use the mark in commerce. Common law rights exist if you can show first use and market penetration (ie advertising budgets, web site traffic statistics, etc). You need an affidavit and some other evidence in order to show common law trademark rights but a good domain dispute attorney will know how this is done.

I hear this all time, "you need a filed trademark with the trademark office in order to have rights under the domain dispute policy." I am glad to hear that this is not true. But how do I win a UDR case if I have not field my trade mark with the UDPTO?

Idiots! They did not even come close. The media is full of misinformation, especially about internet issues. The GoDaddy lawyer was probably misquoted.
