DOTASIA AND THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (CHIP) JOIN HANDS

San Francisco - At the 133rd Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA) in San Francisco, DotAsia Organization announces the appointment of the ClearingHouse for Intellectual Property ("CHIP") for managing the Sunrise process for Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) in the ".Asia" Top-Level-Domain (TLD). CHIP is a revolutionary system and service that assists brand owners in managing rights protection mechanisms developed by domain name registries.

The IDN Sunrise process is a priority registration period for brand owners to register and protect their brands with domain names (in Chinese, Japanese and Korean scripts) which correspond to their brands. By utilizing CHIP, brand owners can also register transliterations and variants of their brands in these scripts. As of May 18, 2011, domain name registrars can submit domain name applications through CHIP. The deadline for the .Asia IDN Sunrise for Chinese, Japanese and Korean is July 25, 2011.

"DotAsia is committed to curb abusive registrations and to encourage positive usage of the '.Asia' domain. Internet users from China, Japan and Korea are searching for information about global brands in their native language. Having domains that match your brand in the local language is therefore critical for online brand strategy, and serves to enhance your search engine optimization (SEO) and ranking," says Edmon Chung, CEO of DotAsia. "This partnership with CHIP extends our outreach to brand owners around the world to leverage the Sunrise priority process and to enhance the utilization of .Asia domains."

Re: DOTASIA AND THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (CHIP) JOIN HANDS

Thanks for the info.... not 100% sure what this means (a know nothing about how "CHIP" actually helps or who they are) lol - does anyone else know?

I guess the BIG 1 MILLION $ QUESTION is will "CHIP" be overseeing the AUCTION stage of the launch process (and not just the SUNRISE process) and is "CHIP" just the technology platform for domain IP management for later years or also a recognized professional independant auditing company?
i.e. is this just a technology platform or will this also help to ensure a clean fair. ASIA IDN launch process?

As everyone knows from the .ASIA "ascii" Sunrise Launch - the "Sunrise" period was audited (BUT AMAZINGLY, that just meant applications during sunrise ONLY), however the "Auction Process" where the domain names actually got sold / allocated to the final domain name owners, was never audited (and as some of us know personally and everyone else knows from the numerous posts on the web about it, the .ASIA AUCTIONS unfortunately became one BIG 100% SCAM - known to have been UNAUDITED and seen at the best as UNFAIR!).

So does anyone know if:-
a) "CHIP" also oversee the "AUCTION" step of ,ASIA IDN launch?
b) which independant auditing company, will be overseeing and auditing the "Sunrise" stage of the launch processfor the .ASIA IDN Launch ("CHIP"?)?
c) which independant auditing company, will be overseeing and auditing the "AUCTION" and "DOMAIN ALLOCATION" stages of the launch process for the .ASIA IDN Launch?

Cheers all, Asiaplay

So CHIP assumes that when you register a trademark for a brand, that automatically gives you trademarks for all the transliterations/translations?

I wonder how many different Chinese words mean "tide" or "united"

It would be really worrying if dot Asia actually mattered.

Re: DOTASIA AND THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (CHIP) JOIN HANDS

lol - brilliant...

@Drewbert
That is a classic for IDNs - totally agree...
I guess that the trademarks from Macao (Macau) will be deemed to be THE ones most applicable for the transliterations and variants granting for .Asia (not those trademarks from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore etc.)...
Opps - what a nghtmare that variant approach will be - I wonder who this will actually protect - lol - umm...

@RD
yeah thank goodness, that it doesn't matter...

However I do feel tempted to buy just one, based on a good transliterations (Chinese Synonyms, Japanese Synonyms or Korean Synonyms) thesaurus / dictionary, to see what I actually get (wonder if I could get the hiragana, kanji, katakana, rōmaji, hangul, hanja, pinyin etc. etc. as variant versions too???)... lol

Cheers all, Asiaplay
