As technology continues to play a bigger role in the world, new dispute emerge such as cyber law disputes, cyber forensics disputes, and e-discovery related disputes. WIPO is still establishing itself in these new emerging areas but it will have to expand in order to stay competitive.

He suggests that “One area that WIPO must pay special attention is Dispute Resolution of Cross Border Technology Transactions and E-Commerce Disputes…The future disputes would be Techno Legal in nature and WIPO must be well prepared to deal with the same.”
