An article by Daniel Greenberg and Elad Kinstler of Lexsynergy was published in the July edition of ‘without prejudice – The Law Magazine’ (www.withoutprejudice.co.za). The article is entitled ‘The impact of ICANN’s new gTLD programme on trademark owners’ and highlights the potential issues facing trademark owners as a result of ICANN’s intention to open up the Internet domain name sector by allowing suitable applicants to register new gTLDs. The issues discussed have faced widespread debate within the Intellectual Property community and may potentially add to the difficulties facing trade mark owners who wish to protect their marks online.
