What's Next After the Big Reveal of New GTLDs?

June 18, 2012 • Webinar

Following the close of the application window for new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs), parties who are interested in this process will be focusing on the next phase. This phase will include the evaluation of the applications received and the resolution of disputes that arise following the publication by ICANN of the 2,000+ applications for new Internet extensions. In this short, complimentary webinar, we will discuss the road ahead for those who have been following the roll-out of the New gTLD Program, explain the processes that have been established by ICANN, reveal potential strategies, and provide clear recommendations. So whether you have applied or not for one or more proprietary gTLDs, this is certainly not the end of the road. In fact, for some this will just be the start.

This webinar will examine:

  • What are the key actions to undertake immediately after the announcement of the list of new TLD applications? 
  • When and how will applications be handled?
  • What position should be taken when strings are in contention?
  • What are the legal options when your rights or interests are at stake?

Please note, we also invite those planning to attend ICANN's 44th Meeting (24-29 June) to schedule in-person, follow-up meetings with us in Prague. Also, Crowell & Moring will soon be scheduling additional, in-depth webinars for those requiring additional insights into some of the topics highlighted above.
