In October 2013, ICANN delegated the first new generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the largest expansion of the Internet domain name system to date. As of December 2014, over 430 new gTLDs have been delegated, and new “dot brands” (permitted for the first time) will soon begin to launch.
What should IP rights holders know about ICANN’s plans for the next round of new gTLDs?
What is ICANN doing to ensure that lessons learned from this round with regard to IP rights protection will factor into policies for the next round?
Finally, with the forthcoming transition of the US Government’s stewardship over the IANA functions to the global Internet community, what should IP owners know about the process and how to ensure that the IP stakeholder community stays involved?
