In a recently published study, Jan Bernd Nordemann and Dean S. Marks, Attorney-at-law and Emeritus Executive Director and Legal Counsel for the Coalition for Online Accountability, examine the various operators of the domain name system and the responsibility of such operators and service providers with respect to online enforcement of copyright.

The study examines the various regulatory regimes applicable to domain name service providers. Further, it describes how different national laws have provided for remedies for online copyright infringement. Finally, the study examines what actions domain name service providers can undertake to discourage online copyright infringement.

Jan Bernd Nordemann and Dean S. Marks presented the study at the WIPO Advisory Committee on Enforcement (ACE) from August 31 to September 2, 2022 in Geneva. WIPO is the World Intellectual Property Organization.
