DotASIA: October 9th !

« Reporting from the ICANN Meeting in San Juan, Puerto-Rico) Alongside the usual T-shirt, ICANN attendees had an even nicer surprise in their bags: the full – and final – .ASIA Calendar! The document is quite useful for one who wants to get ready to protect its portfolio in Asia. For brand owners, the key date is October 9th for the very beginning of the so-called Sunrise Period (for marks registered before March 16, 2004).The landrush were similar requests for non trademarks could result in an auction is now scheduled for the month of February next year, right after Chinese New Year.Yet, a lot is still unknown about the extension to this day. For example, the validation agent – that will determine whether or not a trademark is valid for the Sunrise on October 9th – is still not chosen, and the technical aspects of the Registry – backed by .info’s Afilias – are still rather vague. DomaiNews shall have more tomorrow after the dedicated presentation that has yet to be made to the Registrar community! »
