Could .college domains be a nightmare for schools?

Extract: "Several years ago, the University of Hawaii discovered a .xxx site bearing its name – and lots of nude photos of couples having sex. The school eventually convinced the owner to shutter the site, but it left other schools wary and scrambling to snap up addresses that might be used against them".

Reminder:
  • To participate in a Sunrise Period, Colleges should submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse and check its calendar;
  • Colleges will soon be able to register a domain name ending in ".college" with GoDaddy;
  • Promoting new domain names to the right target requires time: contact Jovenet Consulting.
