Talking ICANN and New gTLDs at INTA?s 138th Annual Meeting

ICANN?s New gTLD Program has always been regarded with some degree of skepticism from the intellectual property community. After all, in-house counsels tasked with protecting trademarks online previously had to only consider a few legacy TLDs like .com and .net as well as ccTLDs like .de and .cn, whereas now they must take action to protect trademarks across hundreds of additional gTLDs. At the INTA 138th Annual Meeting, which took place May 20-25, 2016, the New gTLD Program was the focal point of one panel discussion, followed by a related Q&A session.

Measuring the success of the gTLD program

There will come a point in the history of the new gTLD program when we have to decide whether it was a success or a failure. The criteria for success have never been clearly defined, but we can use a number of milestones and initial objectives to rate whether we can give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.

Your time is the biggest expense with cheap new TLDs

Fraud Prevention Part 1 of 2: Trends in Social Engineering

In Part 1 of a 2-part blog on fraud prevention, Stefanie reviews current trends in social engineering. Fraud today is often based on Social Engineering, or the psychological manipulating of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. It?s a type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access. It differs from a traditional ?con? in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme.

The Growing Threat of Domain Hijacking (and How to Protect Against It)

Domain hijacking seems like a foreign concept to most but it is a very real threat.

In most cases, these disruptions are temporary but they can produce lingering fallout on brands.
