Under the radar

  • Goldman Sachs filed a complaint before the NAF over goldmansex.com [Reuters Latina América]
  • It has nothing to do with the precedent headline ;-) but Eric Goldman has a post on Search engine liability for selling keywords
  • "The housing company Shomera has won a trade mark case in the Irish High Court that will allow it to stop" someone from using seomra.com [IPKat]
  • Apparently, (big) owners of parked domain names now can monetize them through Google [AdScriptor]
  • All over the world, people seem to like Misses... and to desire their domain names! The only UDRP case that was challenged before a French court was over "missfrance" (in .biz , .net, .org, .info, .tv). Now missperu.com.pe is in the cyclone eye!
  • 0.003% of world websites attract 45% of internet traffic [Dominios IDN]
  • "The US Government may need to develop new milestones and benchmarks to determine when it would be appropriate to relinquish its special role in overseeing the Internet's global addressing system," CDT said in comments to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) manages the Domain Name System (DNS) under a contract with NTIA that is set to expire in September. NTIA requested comments from the public on a range of issues, including whether ICANN has made enough progress to operate free of direct governmental involvement. CDT suggested that NTIA may need to study what safeguards would be needed to ensure that ICANN would be able to remain independent in the current global environment)
