3 questions on our survival

1. guys, is it possible that someone makes decision to take the idn domains away from domainers and give it to those who own the same domains in latin (ascii)? i mean if say they guy owns: vodka.com - will they give the right to get водка.com for the initial price (or will court go for this decision)? what do you think?

2. another question: i think this is more likely for .ru domains? since the decisions like that are more common in Russia, and it will make sense to all the current ascii.ru sites - it's logical...

3. and the final question: is there any chance that the russianidn.com domains would cost nothing because of some new development or decision? how good are the chances for that?

please answer like:
1. ..................
2. ..................
3. ..................

thanks.

Re: 3 questions on our survival

1. Would the owner of car.com be entitled to coche.com (Spanish) or voiture.com (Italian)? No.

2. Who would get Москва.ru... moscow.ru, moskva.ru, or even mockba.ru?

3. Possible.

Re: 3 questions on our survival

1. I don't think this possible with non-Latin names as they will not generally be confusingly similar. It what it looks like that is important with TMs not what it represents or sounds like.
2. I think it is possible that they may allocate dot RU on transliteration basis, but it is anyone's guess.
3. There is virtually no chance domains will be replaced with anything else. Dot RU might prove more popular than dot com but if Russia goes IDN before Dot RU is launched then that risk recedes greatly. I think there is no chance whatoever that Latin will be kept in preference to Cyrillic.

Re: 3 questions on our survival

1. clear - i guess the only case when it's possible is when it's a trademark - say: nokia.com нокия.com and idns in other languagues .com and even all other extensions - subject to local laws and decisions though.

2. Москва.ru... moscow.ru, moskva.ru, or even mockba.ru? yes, it's subject to the decision from the regulating body. the same story as it can happen with all trademark owners of: vodka - in russia. or is there only one?

3. what are the risks we have? how big are the risks?

Rubber Duck - #3. i agree. i think .ru will be more popular than .com in Russia for IDNs - but who knows how they decide with the extensions... it's clear that it will be transformed into native language too within some years - but what would be the method...? when we discussed this quesion with alphamale we thought that they probably make it happen with .ком (russian letters) equals to .com - i think, that would be great for us, quite logical, easy to implement, and they will make (not lose) a lot of money. however local goverment might insist in local language tlds... but that will ruin the internet - so i think will never happen. - the "decoding" method make more sense - but is too complicated - which would equal what? especially in the .ru (.ру) case.

Re: 3 questions on our survival

Not in the format you asked since the questions have allready been answered

IF i got the picture right... IDN.RU will cost Over $1,000.00 USD to reg and even if you want to pay this you will have to show you have a 'concrete' connection to the industry via sunshine,sundown and rainy periods...
.RU = .ру and .py is for paraguay, the 'rumor' says they will either do .rf (рф) for russian federation or .rus (рус) But won't do .ru which is good since either of the other 2 option have 0 brand recognition and .com/net has its brand recognition worldwide - russia included

the above are all likely to happen and all will benefit russian idn.com/net holders imo.

thoughts and scenarios are welcome

Re: 3 questions on our survival

currently if you have x.com and x.fr is interested and if it's not a trade mark, x.fr will have to buy your x.com.

The same applies also for IDN within .com.

Also to add that generics can also be trademarked.

Anyone knows a cheap trademark service? Online app preferably.

I am not convinced that this is in any way useful.

Maybe not for common law, but it's particularly useful for places like China where the law is rigid and not implicit - if someone trademarks Google before Google gets the trademark in China, Google cannot operate as Google in China.

There have been cases that American companies win, but only after years and multiple court cases, appeals, and maybe bribes to the judges involved.

Amazing? But that's how it works.

Well that may be so, but a Generic Term is a Generic Term and the chances are any TM would be worthless.

Furthermore, if the registration is in the US, I think you will find that that is where the UDRP would be held, as that is where the legal juristiction is.

Re: 3 questions on our survival

We seen these discussions prior and been there...but...i.e Puma in whatever language...does the fact you think of Puma the shoes/clothes makes it a TM? i dont think so...IF you use this domain to sell shoes/clothes or surrounding products it surely impliments bad intensions and you will lose the domain but if you put up a small/big site dedicated to Puma's...where is the problem?
