The ICA honored Gerald Levine, the respected intellectual property lawyer and scholar, with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding contributions to the world of domain name law. The award ceremony was held virtually last Thursday, April 27th, bringing together Gerry’s friends, colleagues and ICA members.

Gerald Levine has authored many articles and books on intellectual property law, focusing on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution (UDRP) Policy. However, his legal treatises on trademark and domain names hold special significance.
The ICA Lifetime Achievement Award acknowledges Gerry’s unmatched expertise on domain name law and his commitment to delving into and discussing UDRP Policy jurisprudence.
Gerald Levine’s recognition by the ICA is a well-deserved tribute to his longstanding contributions to the field of intellectual property law.

In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, an annual lecture series will be established in honor of Gerald Levine. This lecture series will serve as a platform to promote discourse and learning in the field of the UDRP.
