    The first such WIPO conference on e-commerce and intellectual property, held in September 1999, promoted better understanding of the relationship between e-commerce and the intellectual property system. It led to the launch of WIPO's Digital Agenda, a plan of action for adapting intellectual property to the digital age and to the adoption by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, an expedited system for resolving domain name disputes. It confirmed that intellectual property rights are of central importance in maintaining a stable environment for the future development of e-commerce.
