File Under: Know Your Audience When Choosing a Non-.com Email Address

I Want My Name I Want My Name: Whenever I register a domain, there’s always a tinge of panic when choosing a non-.com. It’s totally silly. The amount of traffic you’re likely to lose is minimal-to-none, but I feel it nonetheless.
In that moment of panic though, one thought never occurred to me – while people will eventually find me online with a non-.com, will I permanently lose people because of email?
From Andrew Allemann – Domain Name Wire:
But there’s another type of leakage that occurs when you don’t use .com: email. And this is where business can be lost.
…make no mistake, some misdirected email leads to lost business or unhappy customers. Like the company that sent a follow-up proposal to someone they just met with and then sent another message two weeks later asking why they hadn’t heard back. Or the person running late to a meeting who emailed to say when he’d arrive.

Email is a funny thing. On the one hand, people get a ton of it, and it’s easily ignored. But on the other, it’s the most formal communications tool the internet offers. Emails contain important thoughts, work orders, requests, and in the example above, excuses for why people aren’t at meetings (I’d recommend calling?). Emails are important, and making sure you get them should probably be a priority.
I wonder how many emails you’d actually lose though by having an email address ending in a non-.com. I haven’t typed in an email address in a long time – between auto-form population from links, copy/paste, and contact forms on pages, I pretty much have it all covered. I imagine if you’re dealing with a fairly tech savvy audience, everything would be fine. But, for example, if you’re a plumber dealing with all kinds of populations, maybe I’d spend a while thinking about it. Still, you’re probably fine, but keep it in mind.

Cisco Introduces Intent-Based Network, It Can Learn, Adapt and Mitigate Threats

CircleID CircleID: Cisco has launched an intent-based networking solution designed to be intuitive and adapt; a new approach claimed to be one of the most significant breakthroughs in enterprise networking. "This new network is the result of years of research and development by Cisco to reinvent networking for an age where network engineers managing hundreds of devices today will be expected to manage 1 million by 2020. ... Today companies are managing their networks through traditional IT processes that are not sustainable in this new age. Cisco's approach creates an intuitive system that constantly learns, adapts, automates and protects, to optimize network operations and defend against today's evolving threat landscape."

This approach is believed to change the fundamental blueprint for networking, says Cisco: "The intuitive network is an intelligent, highly secure platform — powered by intent and informed by context."

— Intent: "Intent-based networking allows IT to move from tedious traditional processes to automating intent, making it possible to manage millions of devices in minutes — a crucial development to help organizations navigate today's ever expanding technology landscape."

— Context: "Interpreting data in context is what enables the network to provide new insights. It's not just the data that's important, it's the context that surrounds it — the who, what, when, where and how. The intuitive network interprets all of this, resulting in better security, more customized experiences and faster operations."

— Intuition:” The new network provides machine-learning at scale. Cisco is using the vast data that flows through its networks around the world, with machine learning built in, and unleashing that data to provide actionable, predictive insights."

How to Dispute a Third-Level ‘Country-Code’ .com Domain Name (Such as nike.eu.com)

CircleID CircleID: Shortly after I recently wrote about WIPO's new role as a domain name dispute provider for the .eu ccTLD, the Forum published its first decision on another type of "eu" domain name: eu.com.

The decision involved the domain name nike.eu.com. What makes this case interesting is that it represents one of the few .com domain name disputes that includes a country-code in the second-level portion of the domain name.

To be clear, the .com top-level domain is subject to the UDRP — which means that domain names in the second level (such as "example" in example.com) can be disputed under the UDRP. But, historically, third-level .com domains (such as "three" in three.example.com) have been considered outside the scope of the UDRP.

CentralNic Dispute Resolution Policy

Despite this, the registrants of a handful of second-level domain names that correspond to country codes have adopted domain name dispute policies for third-level domain names. Most of these second-level domain names are controlled by CentralNic, a registry operator:
.ae.org.africa.com.ar.com.br.com.cn.com.de.com.eu.com.gb.com.gb.net.gr.com.hu.com.hu.net.jp.net.jpn.com.kr.com.mex.com.no.com.qc.com.ru.com.sa.com.se.com.se.net.uk.com.uk.net.us.com.us.org.uy.com.za.com
Third-level domain names registered within these second-level domains are subject to the CentralNic Dispute Resolution Policy ("CDRP"). In addition, the operator of the .co.com domain name has adopted the UDRP for third-level domain names.

CDRP v. UDRP

The CDRP is very similar, but not identical, to the UDRP. Here are a few key differences:

The CDRP defines a "domain name" as "any domain name registered under a sub-domain provided by CentralNic," while the UDRP applies to second-level domains within those top-level domains that have adopted the UDRP (such as .com, .net, .org and all of the new gTLDS).
The CDRP requires a trademark owner to participate in a 10-day free CentralNic mediation process before filing a CDRP complaint. The UDRP contains no such mediation process.
The third element of the CDRP requires only that a trademark owner prove that the domain name "should be considered as having been registered or being used in bad faith" (emphasis added), but the UDRP requires a trademark owner to prove both registration and use in bad faith.
The Forum (formerly the National Arbitration Forum) is the only CDRP-approved dispute resolution provider and has handled about a dozen CDRP cases since 2015. But the nike.eu.com case was the first one involving the "eu" second-level domain.

The nike.eu.com Decision

The panel in the nike.eu.com case apparently found the dispute straightforward, writing that "Complainant's NIKE trademark is well-known and registered in many countries throughout the world" and noting that "Respondent uses the <nike.eu.com> domain name to perpetrate a phishing scheme whereby <nike.eu.com> website visitors, who may also be Complainant's customers, are deceived into revealing proprietary personal data such as email addresses and account passwords."

As a result, the panel ordered the nike.eu.com domain name transferred to Nike, Inc.

A Reminder for Trademark Owners

While there's nothing novel in the nike.eu.com decision, the case is an important reminder that some third-level domain names within .com (and also .net and .org — as the list above shows) are subject to a very useful dispute policy. Trademark owners should consider these policies if a dispute arises.
