The EPA let NoAttacks.org expire. Then it blamed the new owner for cybersquatting.

Domain Name Wire Domain Name Wire: Your tax dollars at work. Here’s a good example if you want to get a feel for how the federal government can work. For about 15 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency used the domain name NoAttacks.com for an anti-asthma campaign. In late 2015 it inadvertently let the domain name expire. The domain name was […]

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday April 28th

Domain Shane Domain Shane: How hard can it be to get the day and date right in the header?  According to my results it must be pretty hard.  I got 2 out of my 5 posts wrong this week.  It shows that my brain is not all there some days after a busy day  The pic below shows I move a lot during the day and could be a possible cause. A typical week is 150,000 steps. Not sure how many the typical domain investor gets.  The nursery has been busier than I could have ever imagined.  We officially did more business on Saturday and Sunday than I did in my first year in 1995.  A whole year in two days.  Running a business is tough.  Running a business that is in hyper growth is exceptionally tough.  Adding employees, infrastructure, roles, and procedures while in constant motion is probably the most challenging thing I’ve experienced.   Fortunately at the end of each day I get to end it with millions of plants and peace and quiet.  I can just walk into a greenhouse and sit down in the middle of gorgeous plants.  I won’t lie, I walk out into the property almost every night and can’t believe that I got to make the decisions that built everything around me.  How big its become.  When I have to rent out a whole restaurant for the company party instead reserving a table.  It’s humbling but at the same time I have no problem sharing that it was done with a lot of hard ass work and good decision making. Two things that most people lack. Here are today’s names   Click for Current Price   And a special shout out to Richard for the kind words.  Made my night last night.

Dot-Com is Still King – of Domain Name Disputes

CircleID CircleID: Despite the launch of more than 1,200 new gTLDs, .com remains far and away the most popular top-level domain involved in domain name disputes.

In 2016, .com domain names represented 66.82 percent of all gTLD disputes at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the only domain name dispute provider that publishes real-time statistics. And, as of this writing, the rate is even higher so far in 2017, with .com domain names accounting for 69.78 percent of all disputes.

Not surprisingly, the overall trend since the launch of the new gTLDs shows .com appearing in a smaller percentage of cases under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). For example, in 2012, when the new gTLD applications were unveiled, .com domain names represented 74.84 percent of all gTLD disputes at WIPO.

Of course, some new gTLDs are appearing in UDRP cases, with 13 new gTLDs represented in 10 or more UDRP cases at WIPO in 2016:

.xyz
.top
.club
.online
.vip
.store
.website
.cloud
.site
.space
.shop
.lol
.date
But, the discrepancy between .com disputes and others is tremendous (as the chart above shows): WIPO saw 3,120 .com domain names in dispute proceedings last year, but the most-commonly disputed new gTLD — .xyz — appeared only 321 times.

As I've written before, the large number of new gTLDs probably contributed to a record number of UDRP disputes in 2016. But it's clear that new gTLDs are accounting for relatively few disputes.

Trying to understand why new gTLDs don't appear in more UDRP proceedings is pure speculation, though a couple of explanations seem reasonable:

New gTLD registrations account for a small percentage of all domain names. While there were 329.3 million total domain name registrations (with .com accounting for 126.9 million of those) as of the end of 2016, there are currently fewer than 29 million new gTLD registrations. Therefore, there is simply a relatively small number of gTLD registrations that could be subject to a dispute.
Trademark owners care more about .com domain name registrations and how they are being used. While new gTLDs are bothersome to many trademark owners, their limited appeal makes them less important to dispute.Written by Doug Isenberg, Attorney & Founder of The GigaLaw FirmFollow CircleID on TwitterMore under: Cybersquatting, Domain Names, Top-Level Domains
