I will speak at a GOAL (Global Outsourcing Association of Lawyers) webinar on July 10, 2012 re one of the most significant changes to the Internet, ICANN’s expansion of the namespace to include an unlimited new number of generic top-level domains (gTLDS) in any language.
I will cover the following:
a. Who applied for a gTLD and why
b. How will ICANN handle contention sets
c. What three entities submitted the most applications
d. How do the applicants intend to use their domains
e. The public comment period and the comments received to date
f. What is a formal objection and to whom must it be submitted
g. How will the dispute resolution service providers handle formal objections
h. How will the auctions be run if those applicants with the same or similar strings fail to compromise
i. Some guidance for brand owners going forward
