A "version 2" of the Internet?

Extract: "One will wonder what this article has to do with new gTLDs but considering the creation of an Internet "version 2", offers website and brand owners many advantages. Starting from scratch allows to avoid all mistakes made with domain names. Brands and domain name owners already know what they would like to get rid of with .COM domains and new gTLDs: an alternative root would allow that".

Geographic Indications in gTLDs

Extract: "oriGIn believes that the ICANN process for the attribution of new generic Top-Level Domains (new gTLDs) - as well the system of traditional gTLDs such as .com, .int, .org, etc. - should be fully compatible with the internationally accepted rules on Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and, therefore, should take into account GIs as prior rights deserving protection in case of irregular use in new gTLDs".

New ICANN gTLDs - What’s Next?

Extract: "Although we are just beginning to see the impact of the auction process, some auctions are now being won for $5 million and higher. High fees for registries are raising eyebrows not only on the level of fees (over $23 million collected from registrars and registries to date) but on how these fees will be used by ICANN. The most recent figures indicate that ICANN’s surplus revenue from the new gTLD program is in the area of $87 million, and that this will be supplemented by over $20 million in auction fees – amounting to a staggering $100 million in profit".

Internet Domain Name .Africa faces hurdles

Extract: "In addition to explaining the current status of the IRP Process with ICANN, the CEO of DCA Registry also used the opportunity to expound on the implications of the DCA vs. ICANN IRP as a proper test of the accountability mechanisms of global Internet Governance processes as represented by ICANN; and also stressed that the delays over .Africa are amply justified since Africa's Internet scene would be hurt more by a miscarriage of justice when there is no room for proper accountability".

UDRP: fifthstreet.finance

Extract: "The Complainant says the Respondent must have known about its trademark rights because they were registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse. The Complainant does not state when the trademarks were so registered. However, the Respondent points out that the sunrise period for the ".finance" gTLD expired on August 30, 2014 and he did not register the disputed domain name until September 10, 2014, after that expiry. So it does not follow that he would have been notified of the Complainant's trademarks".

.Attorney Domains Are Appearing In Search Results

Extract: "This is especially interesting given that these domains have barely been available for a month.

Experience and Evidence Point to Strong Renewal Rates for New TLDs

Extract: "Meaning Matters: there is a tendency in analyzing TLD performance to focus on the distinction between "real" users who register domains for the purposes of immediately establishing businesses and identities online, and domain investors (or "domainers"), whose principal goal is asset monetization, either through resale or advertising".
