Rights protection mechanisms for new internet layer outlined, but could more have been done?
OP3FT, the non-profit organisation whose purpose is to hold, promote and protect the newFrogans layer of the internet, has expanded on the rights protection mechanisms (RPMs) being made available to trademark owners. However, a leading commentator has expressed disappointment at the conservative approach it has taken towards intellectual property protection. (possible registration required to read this article).

How do you choose the domain names to enter into the auction?
Monte: We look at a number of factors in choosing names for the RightOfTheDot / NamesCon auction (not in order of importance).

‘Adult’ Domains Pose New Challenges for Trademark Owners
The launch of new adult-related top-level domains is reminiscent of the early days of cybersquatting, when domain name registrants created pornographic websites that contained trademarks owned by well-known brands

Bilan .PARIS, un an après
L'extension de nom de domaine .PARIS a été lancée en juin 2014. Dans un premier temps réservée à une liste très restreinte de professionnels, l'extension .PARIS avait ensuite été ouverte au grand public en décembre 2014. A peine un après son lancement public, quel premier bilan peut-on tirer ?

  4. The Way Forward: Collaboration and Co-opetition
  5. .MUSIC Will Go Mainstream Benefiting the New gTLD Program and ICANN

Réponse du Ministère de l’Economie, de l’industrie et du numérique (JO SENAT, 24/12/2015, p.3594)
À la suite d’un nouveau recours intenté par la Commission européenne et les organisations viti-vinicoles (procédure de l’ICANN dite de « cooperative engagement »), la délégation de ces deux domaines est aujourd’hui suspendue afin de permettre à l’ICANN, à la Commission européenne et aux représentants des viticulteurs européens de discuter une nouvelle fois.
