We discussed UDRP cases and news about the Domain Clearinghouse on today’s Internet Law Talk Podcast.
Then we moved on to the Trademark Clearinghouse, which is the entity that will help protect brands from having cybersquatters register their exact trademarks as domain names in the new global Top Level Domains being released later this year. The folks at Domain Incite had a nice article about the Trademark Clearinghouse prices, including how complex it is to get a discount for registering multiple marks.
Finally, will there be a trade association for global Top Level Domain holders? Google suggests this is a good idea, since there needs to be coordination among the holders as well as with browser creators (like Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Apple) to make sure that new domains resolve properly in browsers.
