In the past, we’ve talked about the liberalization of domain name extensions. In those occasions, we were leaving a glimpse of the potential problems of trademark rights, between others, that could be found and we mentioned as an example the reason why the extension was not accepted.
The establishment of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) increases the possibility to have a corporative identity on the internet. In particular, it is possible to differentiate themselves and have an extension corresponding to its trademark or the company name. Obviously, this liberalization comes with its negative side which is the emergence of new abuses, such as cybersquatting, and other practices contrary to the rights of intellectual property.
