A number of important changes to the Internet ecosystem have taken place over the past few years. These include the 2012 launch of the new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program and the 2014 announcement by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration of its intention to transition oversight of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) to the global multi-stakeholder community. As a result of these changes, the ICANN community has been busier than ever—e.g., launching new gTLDs, implementing Rights Protection Mechanisms, gathering data on the domain name marketplace in view of the new gTLDs, planning for the IANA stewardship transition and developing enhancements to ICANN accountability in view of this impending shift in the governance of key Internet resources.
Please join us as Brian Winterfeldt, the co-head of Mayer Brown’s Global Brand Management and Internet Practice, and several other leading industry experts address a range of topics including:
- New gTLD program reviews and ongoing new gTLD implementation issues
- Rights protection mechanisms and intellectual property protection
- ICANN contractual compliance issues
- Subsequent rounds of new gTLDs
- IANA stewardship transition
- ICANN accountability issues
