Attorneys and executives involved in managing domain name ownership, e-commerce, and trademark protection.
On June 13, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) revealed details regarding 1,930 applications for new global top-level domain names (gTLDs) that will compete with .com, .net, .org and other well-established Internet suffixes. The applied-for gTLDs -- from .aaa to .zulu -- represent one of the most important changes to the Internet and will create significant legal implications for trademark owners online.
Businesses of all sizes that want to protect their brands on the Internet can take advantage of a number of new and established legal policies and procedures in light of this domain name expansion. Two days after ICANN's so-called "Reveal Day", this TeleBriefing will provide trademark owners with important information about how to respond to the newly identified gTLD applications.
Among other things, the TeleBriefing will educate companies about their options for filing oppositions to specific domain name applications, how to protect their rights by participation in ICANN's new Trademark Clearinghouse, and how the existing Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the new Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) will apply.
