ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

For page document, and guidelines are not approved but brief described thus:

Generic Names Supporting Organization (“GNSO”) – made nineteen recommendations
related to the introduction of new TLDs. (The GNSO’s report may be found here:
http://gnso.icann.org/issues/new-gtl...ta-08aug07.htm.) While these
recommendations are still under consideration by the ICANN Board and are subject to revision,
this call for Expressions of Interest is being issued in parallel with Board consideration in order
to be prepared to implement the program as soon as practicable. Four of the GNSO
recommendations involve disputes that may be referred to a Dispute Resolution Service Provider
(“DRSP”). Those proposed recommendations are as follows:
Recommendation 2:
“Strings must not be confusingly similar to an existing top-level domain or
a Reserved Name.”
Recommendation 3:
“Strings must not infringe the existing legal rights of others that are
recognized or enforceable under generally accepted and internationally
recognized principles of law.
Examples of these legal rights that are internationally recognized include, but
are not limited to, rights defined in the Paris Convention for the Protection of
Industry Property (in particular trademark rights), the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political
Rights (ICCPR) (in particular freedom of expression rights).”
Recommendation 6:
“Strings must not be contrary to generally accepted legal norms relating to
morality and public order that are recognized under international principles of
law.
Examples of such principles of law include, but are not limited to, the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Covenant
on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the Convention on the Elimination of
All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the International
Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination,
intellectual property treaties administered by the World Intellectual Property
Organisation (WIPO) and the WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of
Intellectual Property (TRIPS).”
Recommendation 20:
“An application will be rejected if an expert panel determines that there is
substantial opposition to it from a significant portion of the community to
which the string may be explicitly or implicitly targeted.”

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

So, they still reserve the right to alias gTLDs at some point.... If they could make money on it....

No change, right?

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

No, it is just moving forward nicely.

However, points that are required to protect dot coms interests that were previously just introduced as incidental comments now appear to be be the crux of the resolution procedure. Nice footwork!

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

I still have seen nothing official or otherwise that they intend to alias. It would be nice to know for sure - either way. I doubt they will make money off it, so why should they alias?

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

Well, you might not be able to see it, but Verisign proposed the idea in the first place, so one can only assume they saw the commercial logic in it somewhere.

Aliasing could be good as it means you can extend an existing brand. The minute it becomes a separate extension, it become something else entirely. Coke use different branding for the same product globally, but nobody would drink the bloody stuff if it didn't have the connotation of being "The Real Thing", now would they? How well did they do with with their New Coke back in the 90s? It bombed. Not because it wasn't better. It must have been. Coca Cola thought so. But the brand continuity was busted. So they were screwed. They ended up having to go back to the Old Formula.

Verisign have two options. Extend their dot com success story by deepening its adoption amongst audiences were it already has huge mind share. Or market a whole range of busted flushes in the hope that a lot of companies are going to feel obliged to buy all of them. Seriously, what would you do?

Corporate America has a rabid obsession with short-term gains which they will not be talked out of by long-term reason.

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

That lacks rational. Verisign have been in this game more than twice as long as I have and I damned sure that is very considerably longer than you have!

You guys are supposed to be the clever guys around here. Do the Math!

Fortune 500 x 50 odd languages = 25,000 domains.

Is that what this is really all about? It is that really as far as corporate America can see?

You know that the "protect your trademark" game is exponentially larger than 500 companies.

Reality often lacks rationale and desirability. Now, I'll go back to my drink!

In my dream world, I have sensible Arabic aliases for free, yesterday, and I'm running 30 second ad spots on prime-time Arabic satellite tv once every 10 minutes teaching people how to type-in Arabic domains - and the ad spots are only running $100 a pop.

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

Not that many US companies are truly Worldwide, but frankly that is neither here nor there.

The real issue is that Verisign either compete in the Chinese and Japanese markets with strong unified branding so they can compete head to head with dot CN and dot JP or they deliberately create brand confusion and simply hand the market over to the local competition. It really is a no brainer. I am not even convinced that the aliasing of dot com will be pushed at all. I suspect they will secure the aliases and then let them sit and collect dust in case strong evidence emerges that they are actually needed.

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

I see your point, RD. It is a very thoughtful one. I just hope they see the wisdom in aliasing.

Maybe they are waiting to see how the ccTLD and other .idn extensions (the domain versions of New Coke) before they announce aliased dot com (the Real Thing)? They might want to see if it is really worth the marketing effort. They might be unconvinced that users worldwide are going to register IDNs. Look at how skeptical the rest of the ascii-only crowd has been.

Just impatient over here....

Re: ICANN Calls for Expressions of Interest from Potential Dispute Resolution Service

They will want IDN. At 75 Million the dot com registry is just about exhausted in terms of potentially useful Latin registrations. With IDN they can extend it to 500 Million and beyond. It is either IDN or alternative extensions. Again, no brainer!
