Afilias, a leading global registry services provider, is advising organizations that they have only until March 29, 2012, to complete their ICANN registration to manage and run their own “dot Brand” Top Level Domains (TLD). After March 29, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) -- the Internet governing body -- will no longer accept registrations. Final proposals from registered applicants must be submitted to ICANN no later than April 12, 2012. In short, applicants must start today if they hope to complete the multi-step application process.
WIPO Domain Disputes Grow, But Disputes Proportionally Decline
In 2011, there was a record 2764 cybersquatting cases covering 4,781 domain names filed by trademark holders with the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO Center) under procedures based on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). This is an increase of 2.5 per cent and 9.4 per cent over the previous highest levels in 2010 and 2009, respectively.
But disputes rose only 2.5 per cent year-on-year from 2010 to 2011 while total domain name registrations around the world grew by more than 18.0 million, or 8.9 per cent, from the third quarter of 2010 to the third quarter of 2011, according to Verisign's latest Domain Name Industry Brief.
