ICANN and the New Top-Level Domains: Feb. 25 conference at AU-WCL

ICANN and the New Top-Level Domains
American
University Washington College of Law, Room NT01
Monday,
February 25, 2019
1:30-5:30pm
We are
in the midst of an historic expansion of internet domain names with more than
1200 new generic top-level domains (“gTLDs”) now competing with
<.com>. This 5000% increase in gTLDs is the biggest change to the
internet’s domain naming system in thirty years (and more are coming soon!). Accompanying
these new gTLDs, are new and innovative–but little known–IP rights protection
mechanisms. These developments could have a profound impact on the rights of IP
owners, domain name registrants, and the public, and on the architecture of the
internet.
