Yes indeed.

Someone more skillful in this forum than I should set up a poll on when Verisign will announce their intentions in an official way (I mean a press release, rather than an email to a blog or a few words to stock analysts).

Re: Updates from the ICANN meeting

Don't you think it could happen that a .net could become more popular than a .com in say, Arabic?

Re: Updates from the ICANN meeting

IDN variant TLD

They're saying variant issue should be settled by September (yeah right)

One question was: Can verisign apply for IDN TLD now?
Answer : Yes, they can apply for any string they like.

That would be stupid though as the variant issue is not settled yet so they could be applying for strings that won't be allowed

Re: Updates from the ICANN meeting

Some interesting notes from today's sessions:

From the IDN Variant session:

Verisign's application for Com/Net etc in other languages will not be held up by the Variant process. The variant process they consider is only with each script, not intra-script.

From the Press Conference:

Rod Beckstrom confirmed that people selling IDN TLD's in the alternative roots will have ZERO claim on rights for those TLD's in the newGTLD process. (Sorry webnames.ru)'

Also, Verisign doesn't have a claim on translations of .com/net etc in other languages, they have to apply and compete with other companies for them, and that current IDN owners have no rights for the same string in any new GTLD's unless they have a TM and file it in the clearinghouse.

So you'd better get your TM app's underway pronto!

Re: Updates from the ICANN meeting

Mull's, maybe you can track down Chuck Gomes from Verisign and ask him his opinion on what Rod Backstrom said regarding translations of .com !

Interesting. Is there a transcript of the press conference somewhere?

Technically speaking, Verisign doesn't have a claim on the translations (or transliterations) of .com/.net in other languages, but what Beckstrom failed to mention is that Verisign can block rival applications for these gTLDs on the grounds that they sound confusingly similar to .com/.net. So no big problem for Verisign.

But I remain a bit nervous about all this trademark-sunrise stuff. The new, and somwhat worrisome, news from this press conference is that ICANN (or at least Beckstrom) don't seem to care whether москва.com and москва.ком point to the same place. But they should. Hopefully Verisign cares, if they have a sense of the value of the .com/.ком brand.
