New domain dispute system for Bolivia

NIC Bolivia, the registry responsible for Bolivia's .bo country-code top-level domain, has now adopted a variation of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) for the determination of local domain name disputes.

Apart from the requirement that the complainant own a local trade mark, the main difference between Bolivia's dispute resolution code and the UDRP is that the complainant in Bolivia need prove only that either registration of the challenged name or its use have been made in bad faith, rather than having to prove both.
