Facebook is trying to shift the responsibility to domain name registrars to take an active policing role, according to a Brisbane-based intellectual property and domain name lawyer Sandy Zhang, commenting on Facebook’s lawsuit against an American name registrar Namecheap and its proxy service Whoisguard.
A report published by Melbourne IT's digital brand services unit provides ammunition for those who suspect the expansion in the number of top level domains (TLDs) benefits the domain name industry rather than the Internet community as a whole.
Would be Australian Internet entrepreneurs who think they can trade off the names of the rich and famous can think again, according to the administrator of the .au domain namespace. (Please note that the title of this article has been changed after correspondence with both the former Miranda Kerr domain name owner and auDA. See note at end of this article.)
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
