For the second consecutive year, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has ANNOUNCED a record level of activity relating to domain name disputes, with 2,329 complaints being filed in 2008 under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).  The figure represents an eight percent increase over the previous record year in 2007.
