Verisign confirms their IDN aliasing plans, hooray!
 
Found via DomainIncite: A new blog post by Pat Kane, Verisign senior vice president.

From the blog post:

Recently, Verisign announced details about our IDN.IDN implementation plans. Through this approach, a registrant of an IDN.com or IDN.net or registrant in one of our new IDN TLDs will have the sole right, subject to applicable rights protection mechanisms, but not be required to register the same second level name across all or any of our IDN TLDS, including .com or .net TLD as applicable.

It will be interesting to learn what "subject to applicable rights protection mechanisms" means.

But overall, this is very good news!

VRSN must be confident they will have the .ком legal right objection rejected

it's a smart [commercial] move.
They would have been flamed had they said you have to purchase the twin. They would have been flamed had they said if you didn't purchase the twin, someone else could.

so instead of giving it away, they allow you to make the choice. Buy it or not.

but no choice to "swap" com for the transliteration IDNgTLD.

so in other words, existing registrants have to purchase again if they want the transliteration IDNgTLD

They make a big point of needing to avoid confusion by not having the twins separately owned. So to enable a rights protection mechanism that could effectively separate the twins, would go against that.
The logical step would be to use the UDRP process to gain control of the current registered domain. Thus keeping everything in sync. But we know that - let's hope that was the vibe of the letter they sent to ICANN

alpha, it would be interesting to take a snapshot of the membership and see if this announcement and all future developments will bring many new faces

Can someone also post the Verisign link to domenforum :-D

This is probably best news ever posted on this forum IMHO. Just a shame we are all so "IDN-lagged" .....

But yeah, best .. news ... ever, and the only way VeriSign could proceed. Looks like our "gamble" is going to pay off, albeit way later than it should have.

Congrats to everyone that has hung in

Great News!
The announcement we've all been waiting ( a long time ) to hear!
Let's hope they spend some of the extra cash, getting the news out.

Give it time .... the news will filter out ... slowly. Its not like VeriSign made a big song and dance about it in the first place, only one eagle-eyed member spotted it here.

More interest will follow when the first of these .com translits are near ready for launch, and people properly understand they have "missed the boat". That includes both ASCII domainers (any left?) plus natives thinking they can reg their favorite native language .com on day one.

Just don't ask me what the level of interest will be - wait and see :cool:

After all these years it seems anticlimactic. I never doubted that this would be the case. Nonetheless, Hooray! :clap:

It was just published by VeriSign this morning, probably 1/2 of the regulars were still asleep. ;)
