Article about Hebrew idn's revealing what is really happening

Explains that it is looking as if the registrant of ישראל.com will get ישראל.קום and the people who bought from companies like domain the net bought air.

Nothing new to many here, but good for public understanding.

I'd hate to think of how those people are going to feel after this is all over. Just checking the top keywords they are all taken. The .kom, .het, hell even .opr. BTW, порно.opr is at auction right now if anyone wants to just light their money on fire.




Also, Why did the registry release .kom, .net, .opr? With all the names they withheld and they let these money makers slip through their fingers?

DOOH!

Re: Article about Hebrew idn's revealing what is really happening

but when it comes down to sales, how do they re-sell domains? is there an existing aftermarket for this somewhere?

He may have a chance at making some money from Verisign.

Assuming that both Verisign and Domain The Net apply for קום. (.com in Hebrew):

Verisign can block DTN's application, on the grounds that קום. sounds too similar to .com.

If DTN owns a trademark in Israel on קום. , they can block Verisign's application on trademark grounds.

The stalemate would most likely be resolved by Verisign paying DTN to go away. If it is not resolved quickly, there would be a delay before קום. goes live.

So does anyone know whether Domain The Net owns a trademark on קום. ?

Domain the net tried getting a TM for .קום and it was abandoned in 2009

Re: Article about Hebrew idn's revealing what is really happening

And the companies which got a trademark for a url with a .קום clearly have no rights other then for the SpecificWordWith.com not seperately:


Conditions/Disclaimers

תנאים/הודעות
Registration of this mark shall give no right to the exclusive use of the words COM and קום, but in the combination of the mark.


Conditions/Disclaimers

Registration of this mark shall give no right to the exclusive use of the words מבשרת, קום separately, but in the combination of the mark.

Good news for Verisign, and for owners of Hebrew IDN .com domains.

Avtal
I doubt whether it is really news to either.

It will of course be news to those with completely screwed investment strategies.
