David Weslow Discusses ICANN's Expanded Domain Names

July 5, 2012

David Weslow, a partner in Wiley Rein's Intellectual Property Practice, was interviewed by TechRepublic for a story on legal issues involving the expanded set of domain names that will soon be available.

The article reported that the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has received more than $350 million in application fees as corporations like Microsoft Corp, Wal-Mart, and Cisco Technology apply “for new gTLDs such as .microsoft, .grocery and .cisco.”

When asked about the next phase of the gTLD application process, Mr. Weslow noted that “A public comment process and formal objection process are currently underway. It is anticipated that ICANN will begin formal evaluation of the gTLD applications in mid-July with results of the evaluations expected in October.”
