ICANN 51: Los Angeles – Getting Ready for a Big 2015 (new gTLDs)

Extract: In Los Angeles, ICANN held a session dedicated to soliciting feedback from “RPM Users.” Frustrations were evident from both the brand and business sides as well as the Registrar/Registry side. It is clear that all stakeholders are poised and ready with a list of elements which need to be addressed and improved in the current and future rounds of the new gTLD program. Complaints from brand owners included difficulties with the trademark clearinghouse registration process, evidence of holes in the Sunrise Registration process, the inadequacy of the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS), underdeveloped and underutilized Dispute Resolution Procedures and more. The review is anticipated to begin at the end of January 2015.
