ICANN Delegates First New English Language Top Level Domains

November 11, 2013

ICANN has released the first nine English-language new Top Level Domains (TLDs). These are not the first new TLDs to be delegated, as four non-Latin script TLDs have been delegated previously. ICANN has said the list of new names will be updated, “as the measured rollout of the new gTLDs progresses over the coming years.” Now is the time for brand holders to take action to protect themselves within the limited trademark protections that have been approved by ICANN. Information about the Trademark Clearinghouse, which will allow brand holders to protect their names, is available here.

We encourage all brand holders to be proactive in protecting themselves in the beginning of this unprecedented expansion of Top Level Domains.
