ccIDNs: So Many Choices, So Little Time

Regional marketing groups may also be able to assist in identifying generic terms that should be registered along with the brand. I recently heard of a domainer who was very excited because he had registered 'World Cup' using a non-Latin script. Unfortunately, only later did he find out that what he actually registered was 'World Glass' which did not have the same meaning at all.

the word "opportunity" appears only once.. right next to "cybersquatting". What a shame.

I think in the case of 'world cup' , it will depend what one does with the content on a site like that.


FIFA does not have global rights on 'world cup' per se.
It relates to football/ soccer/ futbol etc...


Rugby has a 'world cup' of its own , and they protect it of course.


So if some one wanted to create a 'world cup' for an obscure sport.

Scottish pole throwing ....

It would not be cybersquatting.

But if a Google.../ FIFA AdWords ad shows up.....ooooops...............


Soccer ....it dies...
Pole throwing ....it lives.
