Designers & Domains: Tailoring the New gTLD System to Fashion

The internet will soon be expanding to include hundreds of new generic top level domains. But are these new gTLDs a trick or a treat? Should you or your clients defensively register domain names containing your trademarks in the new gTLDs? What mechanisms will be available to help protect your brand online? How will fashion houses’ marketing and online brand protection strategies change in light of the new system? Before you lose your head over the potentially scary range of new options beyond .com — from .fashion and .jewelry to variations on designers’ and apparel companies’ names — join INTA and the Fashion Law Institute for a cutting-edge panel discussion, “Designers & Domains: Tailoring the New gTLD System to Fashion.”
