Internet governance: What if the sky really is falling?

There is nothing, I have observed, that makes readers? eyes glaze over quite like a discussion of ?Internet governance.? It is entirely understandable; there has been a fair bit of hand-waving and even hand-wringing, about Internet governance over the past couple of decades ? I have been among the guilty on this ? and nothing much ever actually happens; governance talk turns out to be just that ? talk ? while the Internet seems to purr along quite well from one day to the next, with no more ?governance? than it seemed to have ten or twenty years ago, thank you very much.

A Call to the Global ccTLD Community on the IANA Stewardship Transition ? Let?s Have Our Voice Heard by Byron Holland

On April 22, the working group responsible for developing a proposal for a system to replace the role the United States Government currently has with IANA published its second ? and likely final ? draft proposal for public comment. With the withdrawal of the U.S. Government, the development of the Internet has reached a critical juncture. I believe that input from the global ccTLD managers is critical to ensuring our community's unique needs are reflected in the final proposal.

The Caribbean spirit ? our awareness efforts in Saint Lucia

It is always a pleasure to come to the Caribbean; not only because of the beautiful natural landscape and incredible food but also (and above all) because of its people. The culture and language may be different but yet you feel home. They have this unique hospitality and continuous appreciation for each of the many visitors that come to their countries. That Caribbean spirit permeated and manifested itself in all our activities this week.

ICANN Board Member and Former GAC Chair to Give Evidence in .Africa Case by Michele Neylon

The controversy over the competing .africa TLD applications has been going on for some time. A recent decision by the International Centre For Dispute Resolution (ICDR) said that ICANN had breached its own by-laws and has questioned why ICANN won't allow a current board member and the former GAC Chair to speak to them and provide evidence. A letter that was published on the ICANN site yesterday suggests that ICANN may have changed their tune.

de Is Everywhere ? The Homes of .de Domains: DENIC domain map 2014: The regional distribution of .de domains in Germany

In every district and every city of Germany, you find .de domains. They are literally everywhere. The re-gional domain statistics 2014 published by DENIC, the registry for .de domains, map their distribution in detail. As at 31 December 2014, about 14.6 million .de domains were registered in 402 cities and districts of Germany. Adding to these numbers are more than one million domains of holders whose place of resi-dence is abroad. In total, about 15.8 million .de domains were registered at the end of 2014. Domain de-velopment in 2014 was slightly slower than in the preceding years and confirmed the East-West divide of .de domain distribution.

Adult domain sunrises break records despite trademark counsel ?domain fatigue?

After a record-breaking double sunrise period for its ?.adult? and ?.porn? gTLD strings, ICM Registry has announced it is expanding its programme for trademark owners by allowing sunrise B applicants access to its domain matching programme.

As ?.sucks? goes on marketing offensive, counsel are urged to engage on new gTLDs

We have also heard rumours that more marketing activities are planned.

Running for President? Better Name Your Website Domain Early

A message to anyone considering a political campaign: buy your domain names. Every possible one. And do so early. The latest example of a candidate who did not secure a website URL: Carly Fiorina, whose failure to register carlyfiorina.org allowed a group to use that Web address to host a site critical of her tenure at Hewlett-Packard on the day she announced her candidacy.

us: Rand Paul paid $100,000 for his domain. What other domains cost that much?

In his first day on the 2016 campaign trail, Rand Paul raised just less than $1 million -- meaning that he only spent a little more than two hours worth of said fundraising on RandPaul.com. For you see, the National Journal reports that Paul's team laid out $100,980 to buy the domain from the people who'd owned it for years.

us: Rand Paul Apparently Paid $100,000 for RandPaul.com

Days before Paul launched his bid for president, his campaign shelled out more than $100,000 to a domain-buying firm to purchase a "domain name." Soon after, RandPaul.com, which had previously been a pro-Paul site run by his fans, emerged as the official portal for the campaign.

INTA 2015: Trademark Practitioners Must Redefine Their Role in Branding

The 137th International Trademark Association (INTA) annual meeting just wrapped up in San Diego, and by all accounts, it was the biggest ever?with nearly 10,000 trademark practitioners from more than 150 countries in attendance. ... A major talking point this year was the marketing tactics of the .sucks gTLD: a mobile billboard bearing the words ?inta.sucks?; a large screen displaying well-known brands followed by the ?.sucks? suffix; and even ?.sucks? condoms being handed out in the name of brand protection (possibly).
