Today marks the last day for public comments on the IRT (trademark protection) final report.
The report, which I’ve mentioned a few times in the past, was drafted from the perspective of trademark holders in an effort to allay their fears and concerns associated with the launch of the new TLD program.
You can see the comments submitted to date here and read the report here.
I’ve already made several submissions on the topic, but to summarise:
- Whois and privacy is a matter of concern
- The concept of a “global” trademark list is dangerous
- The rapid suspension model is dangerous and open to abuse
Whether you agree with my views or not is not important, but if you have an opinion on the report you should speak your mind today.
