.us : une plainte d’iCloud

On pensait pourtant qu’Apple allait assurer le coup, mais en fait, non : une petite société texane a décidé de porter plainte contre la firme à la pomme – son nom ? iCloud Communications ! Cette entreprise propose un service de VoIP sous ce nom depuis 2005 et compte bien ne pas se laisser faire…

Étrangement, Apple a déposé la marque iCloud pour l’Europe le 31 mars dernier, le jour même du communiqué de presse annonçant la keynote (et dans lequel on trouvait le terme iCloud). Aux États-Unis, outre l’iCloud du suédois Xcerion (dont le nom de domaine, iCloud.com, a été racheté par Apple pour 4,5 millions de dollars), on trouve une autre marque du même nom, déposée le 6 mai par un certain Douglas Dane Baker.

La plainte pour usurpation de marque a été déposée en Arizona ; gageons que les avocats d’Apple et d’iCloud Communications tenteront de régler l’affaire en coulisses.

NeuStar Wins Contract for United States’ Internet Domain

NeuStar today announced that it has been awarded the contract to operate and administer the .US Internet domain name registry. The official country-code top level domain (ccTLD) for the United States, .US is overseen by the United States Department of Commerce.

The original .US registry contract was awarded to NeuStar in June 2001, and is due to expire on October 25, 2007. The new contract term is for a base of three years beginning October 26, 2007, with the possibility of two one-year extensions.

NeuStar won the competitive .US procurement after the Department of Commerce conducted a careful, thorough, and objective evaluation of all proposals. Criteria for selection included bidders’ experience, track record, and ability to deliver operational performance, technological excellence, policy compliance, product innovation, and marketing. NeuStar was judged to be the best overall registry operator under these criteria.

NeuStar is very pleased to retain operational and administrative responsibility for the .US domain, and we are honored that the Department of Commerce has placed its trust in us once again, said Richard Tindal, vice president of domain name services at NeuStar. This award is a validation of NeuStar’s exemplary performance and stewardship, and demonstrates the value that we provide to the government and to the industry. We are proud to remain in this important role.
