TLDs: Nieuwe extensies, nieuwe mogelijkheden (expert opinion) Tot voor kort was het enkel mogelijk om domeinnamen onder landextensies (zoals .be of .nl) te registreren of onder een zeer gelimiteerde lijst van generische extensies (zoals .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info). Bovenop deze opties komen nu meer dan duizend nieuwe extensies beschikbaar voor registratie. In de nabije toekomst mag je dus namen zoals www.mario.pizza ... read more ...

The TechCrunch article covers the letter sent to ICANN by deviantART’s as to why it deserves a “community designation” in the application process, saying:

One Site Owner Wants to Trade His .Com for a .Link
Switching from a .com to a .link
Jean Guillon runs newsgtlds.com and he wrote about wanting to change to a .link on gtld.club.
From the article:
Prior to the first new domain name launchings, I had created a website entitled NEWSgTLDs.com to inform about new generic Top-Level Domains. New domain names didn’t exist yet so I had to find a domain name and .COM came to my mind. I considered .INFO too but let’s make it simple : you don’t launch a website with a .INFO domain name if you don’t ... read more ...
OpenDNS kills the typosquatting operation
Company to shut down NXD error redirect service.
OpenDNS announced this week that it is shutting down a service that was, in effect, a giant typosquatting operation.
Millions of people use OpenDNS as an alternative to their ISP’s DNS. The useful service needed a way to make money, and it found a very lucrative one: whenever someone would type in a non-existent domain name (NXD), OpenDNS would show them a search results page that also included Yahoo! ads.

15 Year Old Generic Kaleidoscope.com Hit With A UDRP
The domain name Kaleidoscope.com, about a generic as a term as you can get, was just hit with a UDRP.
The domain is owned by Xedoc Holding SA., who has owned the domain since at least 2001 and maybe as far back as 1999
Of course the term has its own Wikipedia entry.
The company who filed the complaint is not yet listed.
With just a quick search of just the United States Trademark office I found 20 live trademarks just on the generic term plus many more which includes ... read more ...
May 27: updated status of sunrise periods and trademark claims notification …
As we previously reported to you (click here to view April 29, 2013 TLD article), the internet is expanding to include hundreds of new top-level-domains (TLDs) (examples of TLDs as we know them today include .com, .net. and .org – i.e., the term that is to the right of the "dot"). While the only certainty at that time was that the launch was inevitable, like it or not, it's finally here (click here to view January 9, 2014 Sunrise article).

Are Nexus Requirements Good or Bad?
I believe that geographic new gTLD extensions are going to be successful. Cities have a built-in audience of businesses and residents who may wish to purchase their business or keyword domain name in their local extension. There are two different approaches to selling their domain names, and one involves limiting sales to entities within the geographic area and the other involves selling domain names to anyone. I am curious to know your thoughts on which is the better approach.

Any interest in .financial?
Brand protection is a key issue for many businesses and is of particular significance for consumer-facing brands. We look at the importance of brand protection in domain names, the launch of the .financial generic top level domain (gTLD) and the steps businesses can take to protect their brand.
Until recently, only a limited number of gTLDs were available, such as .com, .org and .info. The launch of new gTLDs including names such as .academy, .clothing, .properties ... read more ...
Registrants join the ‘.club’, but are brand owners outside looking in?
With heavyweight endorser 50 Cent throwing his weight behind the ‘.club’ gTLD, the string has shot to the top of the gTLD registrations table. However, new research from Domain Incite’s Kevin Murphy suggests that brand owners are shying away from making wholesale defensive registrations.
At time of writing, ntldstats.com’s list of the top 10 gTLDs consists of:

Scoren met nieuwe TLD’s
Op het eerste gezicht lijkt het uitgeven van nieuwe domeinnaam extenties erg voor de hand te liggen. Internet wordt steeds drukker en er worden ook steeds meer domeinnamen aangevraagd. Het is daardoor steeds moeilijker om een goede domeinnaam te bedenken. Wie in Utrecht bijvoorbeeld in Google zoekt naar een taxicentrale in Utrecht vindt al snel taxistadutrecht.nl, taxiutrecht.nl, cheap-taxi-utrecht.nl en taxi-centrale-midland.nl. Een nieuwe taxicentrale in Utrecht zal het wellicht moeten doen met ... read more ...
BRASILE – AMAZON 1-0 nella competizione per i gTLD
E’ notizia di qualche giorno fa che l’ICANN, accogliendo il parere del GAC, ha rifiutato la domanda di Amazon per il gTLD .amazon.
Prima di comprenderne le ragioni, puÃ² essere utile chiarire il significato di questi acronimi nonchÃ© alcuni concetti necessari a districarsi nella “Rete”.
Il dominio di primo livello (in inglese top-level domain, TLD), Ã¨ l’ultima parte dell’indirizzo internet, posta dopo il punto (ad esempio, .it). Un dominio di primo livello ... read more ...

A Word’s Worth: Contention Sets and New gTLD Auctions
- Depending on the person, the word auction can bring to mind a dusty, hot structure full of livestock and a fast-talking announcer with a Western lilt to his voice or a cool, quiet room of well-dressed art patrons waiting for the next Impressionist masterpiece to be unveiled in a stately building on the Upper East Side.Aside from applicants for new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) and those in the ICANN community, most people probably don’t think of auctions as a way to resolve what are essentially ... read more ...

Funniest UDRP. Ever.
This respondent is funny, and it has nothing to do with his response.
Sometimes you have to go back to dig up gems, like this UDRP case from 2002. It was recently spotted by domain lawyer John Berryhill.
The case involved the domain name wwwsportauthority.com, a typo of the sports retailer’s site. The respondent didn’t bother to respond to the case but still managed to make this case hilarious.
Here are the parties in the case:
