Overview of New gTLDs: The Objection Period

Sign up today for an INTA webcast on New gTLDs: The Objection Period.

Archived from previously recorded webcast.

Duration: 90 minutes

On June 13, 2012, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as part of its new gTLD program, published the list of applied-for new generic Top Level Domains (new gTLDs), revealing that over 1,900 applications were submitted for over a 1,000 new gTLD strings.

This webcast will focus on the public review process on the applications, which includes a 60 day public comment period and a seven month formal objection window, during which time trademark owners can inform the evaluation of, or formally object to, a new gTLD application.

Learn from industry experts how trademark owners can navigate ICANN’s new gTLD program, review the list of applied-for names and take action on applications that may infringe upon their trademark rights.
