What's Next for the New gTLDs

December 16, 2010 • Crowell & Moring Webinar

ICANN's new Generic TLD Program is moving forward, and Crowell & Moring's next webinar will bring you up to date. At its meetings in Cartagena, Colombia, during the week of December 5, ICANN is expected to update the schedule for the new gTLD application process, address recently expressed government concerns, continue to work on finalizing its Applicant Guidebook, and address issues such as trademark protection, malicious conduct, morality and public order policies, scalability and DNS resource effects, and market impacts of the new gTLD program.

Crowell & Moring lawyers will be participating in those meetings in Cartagena, and will bring back first-hand reports about the latest developments on issues that are important to brand owners. In addition, our webinar will address in greater depth the initial questions that will be crucial in any brand owner’s strategic assessment of whether and how to participate in the gTLD process.

This second webinar in our gTLD series will provide actionable intelligence, including practical guidance and specifics on how to approach a company’s individualized assessment of whether to pursue a proprietary gTLD. Crowell & Moring lawyers have hands-on experience with planning and implementing TLD registries and running brand protection programs.

  • The inside story from Cartagena
  • The significance of new developments in the gTLD program
  • Strategic approaches for asking the right questions, and getting to the right answers, in a brand owner’s planning for the new gTLD environment
