ICANN Regional Registry/Registrar Event

ICANN hosted its regional Registry/Registrar Event in Toronto on 20-21 August.

The presentation on new gTLD's sums up some of the open questions raised by the public comments, IRT and others. Most important for brandowners is of course the trademark protection - IP Clearinghouse, Globally Protected Marks list, Uniformed Rapid Suspension System etc.

The 3 character requirement which of course prevent some western brandowners from applying but is especially hard out Chinese, Japanese and Korean brands and generic TLD applicants was also discussed.
