ICANN wrestles with defensive registrations

Extract: "That decision will be one to watch for as defensive registering gains ground, and particularly as celebrities and large companies scoop up multiple gTLDs that could otherwise be used to mock and criticize them or tamper their brands. (U.S. pop singer Taylor Swift made just such a splash in March when she reportedly bought gTLDs including “Taylorswift.adult”, “Taylorswift.xxx”, and “Taylorswift.porn".

Note: there is a TLD which means "trademark". The ".商标" IDN stands for “.trademark” in Simplified Chinese.

Reminder:
  • Fan Clubs can register a ".club" domain name with UniRegistry;
  • Brands can submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse ("TMCH") to participate in a Sunrise Period. The TMCH calendar is available here;
  • Need to promote your new gTLD? Contact Jovenet Consulting for help.
