Many businesses hold their domain name as one of their most valuable assets. Domain names enable consumers to quickly connect with particular businesses over the Internet. However, cyber squatters are known to register variations on domain names in the hope of either having the legitimate companies pay top dollar for the domain or to attract traffic to the domain while they maintain it.

How can you secure protection for your brand? What are the new generic top-level domains (gTLDs)  and possible domain name issues? What impact does the outcome of the December ICANN meeting in Colombia have on your brand? How will these developments affect your work with your clients’ brands moving forward?

We’ll address these questions and more in a webinar on Jan. 20. Learn from a leading panel of global trademark and brand protections experts how ICANN developments will affect the way you protect your brand. Our panel includes J. Scott Evans of Yahoo!, Tom Heremans of CMS DeBacker, Kristina Rosette of Covington & Burling LLP, and David Taylor of Hogan Lovells International. These experts will weigh in on the latest ICANN decisions and share their thoughts about threats and opportunities for trademark protection with new gTLDs and recent case law.

This webinar will focus on:

– Domain names today and in the past
– How to avoid brand infringement – cost effectively and wisely
– New gTLD’s: expected timing and economic consequences
– Latest ICANN decisions and key resolutions that have yet to be made
– Brand owner thoughts
