Launching an auda complaint or auda dispute is a cheaper speedier alternative to litigation and is an economical form of domain name dispute resolution. It can also be seen as a gentler form of rights enforcement as it assists a party with competing rights and disputes between registrants to have the complaint decided by panelist with vast experience in settling these types of cases. Use of domains does not only include use as a URL (the address of a website), but it can include use in email addresses, email account and use in social media account names.
