Foley Hoag to Host Upcoming INTA Roundtable: gTLDs: Status, Process and How is It Working?

We have covered ICANN’s New gTLD Program at great length on this blog.  If you’d like to discuss the new gTLDs and the myriad issues presented by their introduction face-to-face, Foley Hoag is hosting a roundtable luncheon, presented by the International Trademark Association (INTA), on April 4, 2012 from 12:00PM to 2:00PM at our Boston office.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Current gTLDs and anticipated changes.
  • Application/Registration process.
  • Who should be involved in the decision?
  • Trademark challenges in enforcement, infringement and counterfeiting.
  • Registering brands as second level domain names in the new gTLDs?
  • Watch notices.
  • Rights protection mechanisms for brand owners.

At this Roundtable you will share experiences and perspectives from brand owners who are contemplating future registration of a gTLD to those that may have already filed an application — and what this may mean for brand owners with respect to trademark clearance, prosecution, enforcement and litigation.
