About the conference:
The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property (PIJIP) is organising and hosting a conference on ICANN and the New Top-Level Domains, on February 25, 2019, at American University Washington College of Law, Washington, DC.
In the midst of a historic expansion of internet domain names with more than 1200 new generic top-level domains (“gTLDs”) now competing with <.com>. This 5000% increase in gTLDs is the biggest change to the internet’s domain naming system in thirty years (and more are coming soon!).
Accompanying these new gTLDs, are new and innovative–but little known–IP rights protection mechanisms. These developments could have a profound impact on the rights of IP owners, domain name registrants, and the public, and on the architecture of the internet.
The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property (PIJIP) is the internationally recognized intellectual property and information law research and academic program of American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL).
Date: February 25, 2019.
Time and place: 1:30-5:30 | Room NT-01 in American University Washington College of Law, Washington, DC.
