RE: The Darkening Web: Is there Light at the end of the Tunnel? (Michael Roberts)

2017-10-18T10:04:31-08:00

In medieval times, every Duke built his own walled castle, leading to hilltop fortresses scattered here and there. One of the challenges in Wolfgang's analysis is designing a more secure and trusted Internet that benefits everyone, and allocating the resources to make it happen. It won't be a technical monoculture, this is not a "one size fits all" situation.

As the saying goes, "if it was easy, we would have already done it." Unfortunately, superpower politics being what they are, a balanced approach with necessary resources is not going to come from govts. Which makes it very important that the industry/academic research collaboration which marked the early days of the Internet be revived and supported. ISOC's recent steps are a positive sign.

RE: Trademark Rights Paramount to Contract Rights for Domain Names (Gerald M. Levine)

2017-10-11T08:36:48-08:00

Thank you, Mr. Alagna. I don't think brands are necessarily tied to the description of goods/services (probably, the better practice is not to be tied) but I do think businesses should make sure in branding or rebranding that they have the corresponding domain name before going into the market or applying for trademark. This also applies to new products introduced into the market. Gmlevine

Why 117 years? 1850 was 167 years ago, was it not?

RE: Trademark Rights Paramount to Contract Rights for Domain Names (Joe S Alagna)

2017-10-10T15:40:03-08:00

Hi Mr. Levine,

I want to thank you for your article.  I'm always impressed and I learn from you here. This one is especially interesting to me and begs a question that I commonly discuss with business-people;

In your view, when planning to name a business or a new product, what is more important, choosing a name where the most important / valuable domain name(s) can be reasonably registered (or secured in the aftermarket) - or getting the trademark in your classification first?

Another way of asking this is, does it make sense to get a trademark in your classification if, say, the matching .com, .net, .org, or .info domain names have been registered for many years prior (and are not being used for active websites)?

All the best,

He can't be shoot in a democratic country, but of course, he will need to pay the price of his unlawful acts, so it is 15 years of jail.

If we don't take the law seriously, every citizen has the right the break it the same way.

"http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-09/spanish-government-issues-veiled-death-threat-catalan-leader"

"Let's hope that nothing is declared tomorrow because perhaps the person who makes the decalartion will end up like the person who made the declaration 83 years ago."
- spokesman for the ruling People's Party

"Yes, Pablo Casado, we know how our President Companys ended up, shot by the army. Does it make you happy to remind our defenceless people of it?".
- Republican Catalan Left (Esquerra, ERC) MP Joan Tardà

"Companys is the only incumbent democratically elected president in European history to have been executed."

They did not have the internet back then, but their version of censorship no doubt played a role in the politics of their time. If Zerohedge.com were censored, I am not sure I would had had access to todays example of tyranny. If Zerohedge.com were censored, likely other sites trying to present this news would be censored to.

The double edged sword remains, so to the fact that government exists to SERVE its people not the other way around.

RE: Domain Marketing for Powerful Branding (Alex Tajirian)

2017-10-06T12:20:09-08:00

Facebook pages are also indexed. So, as with a domain-name site, if you search for the company name, you should see both types of sites in the results. Thus, you would not necessarily need to spend money to drive traffic to your Facebook page. Nevertheless, big companies spend large sums to drive traffic to their sites. Yet, although type-in traffic (direct navigation) provides an advantage to a domain name, it comes at a potential acquisition price of hundreds of thousands of dollars that small companies don’t have.
Is there evidence that a “great website with a quality domain name is also viewed as more legitimate, trustworthy and professional to your end users than social media platforms”?

As for apps, Google or Apple can decides to kick you out irrespective of the size or type of your online presence. Even so, businesses would still have their Facebook pages that is Google-indexed.

RE: Domain Marketing for Powerful Branding (Tobias Flaitz)

Hi Alex, thank you for taking the time to read the post and raise questions on it. What we're saying is that while a social media presence is important (we have one!), you shouldn’t rely solely on it. It would necessitate spending money to drive traffic to your Facebook page instead of receiving the organic traffic a website automatically fuels when people know your name or search for you. A great website with a quality domain name is also viewed as more legitimate, trustworthy and professional to your end users than social media platforms. Similar issues are raised if you were to only have an app and could only be found in the app store. In this scenario, what happens if Google or Apple decides to kick you out? You will have no presence there anymore and will never be found again. We stand by that your domain is your home and should be the first place people can find you and learn more about your products, services, personal endeavors, etc.

We understand that you want to find some reason for brand TLDs to exist. Good luck.
By the way, I go to conferences with Paypal security people. To a first approximation, all of your assumptions about why they do what they do are wrong.

RE: Why I Want a .PAYPAL New gTLD (Jean Guillon)

2017-10-05T07:44:37-08:00

I agree I would not have paid so much attention to a survey.paypal.com but I find the use of subdomains old fashioned. In regard to wasting money, I'd say that the investment is worth it because .BRAND domain name registration figures are increasing and no one knows where we'll be in 10 years. Also...what's the price of trust?

A figure that I'd be interested to know is how much it cost Paypal to fight against these abuses: not only in terms of money but also, in terms of time.

Paypal could consolidate everything under paypal,com, e.g. fr.paypal.com for their French site, if they wanted to. Other than wasting $200K, a TLD would make no difference whatsoever.

RE: Domain Marketing for Powerful Branding (Alex Tajirian)

2017-10-04T12:09:48-08:00

It would strengthen your argument if you methodically compare a domain-name website to a Facebook page. Can “a single outlet” on, say, Facebook be less confusing than a combination of sites?  Otherwise, you’re just “marketing” domain names.
