  • Royal Caribbean files lawsuit to capture typos

    DomainNameWire.com
    Cruise line goes cruising for typos. Cruise company Royal Caribbean Cruises has filed an in rem lawsuit (pdf) against two typos of its RoyalCaribbean.com domain name. The two domains — RoyalCaribean.com and RoyalCarribean.com — forward to another domain name that is a lead gen site for cruises and is branded with “Royal Caribbean”. I wouldn't be surprised if these domain names get a good bit of traffic. While writing this story I've confused the typo and correct version multiple times. It's interesting that Royal Caribbean is just coming after the domain names now. Both domain names were registered in 1999 and the current owner has owned them since 2005-2006. © DomainNameWire.com 2015. This is copyrighted content.

  • .sucks launches despite trademark lobby outrage

    DomainIncite.com
    Vox Populi took its .sucks new gTLD into its sunrise period as planned today, despite an 11th-hour outcry from trademark lawyers. Pricing varies wildly between registrars. Registry CEO John Berard told DI today that the TLD became available to trademark owners at a minute after midnight UTC this morning as scheduled. ICANN's Intellectual Property Constituency had asked ICANN's top brass late Friday (mid-way through California's final working day before the sunrise was due to begin) to “halt” the launch. I've yet to hear confirmation from ICANN that it will not take action as a result of the IPC's letter, but it has evidently not so far chosen to intervene. The IPC described .sucks, with its suggested $2,500 sunrise fee, as a “shakedown” and a “perversion” of the new gTLD program's rights protection mechanisms. Vox Pop has also published its registry-level fees. It turns out its sunrise fee is $1,999, with a suggested retail price of $2,499. That's an attractive mark-up for registrars, but it's not clear from the registry's web site how many of its 30-plus contracted registrars have chosen to participate in the sunrise phase. With the current volume of sunrise registrations running at fewer than 1,000 per TLD, and most registrations coming via a small number of brand protection registrars, it's debateable whether it's worthwhile for most registrars to bother with the extra implementation work. Several retail registrars I checked are not currently offering sunrise names. One corporate registrar, IPC member MarkMonitor, has promised to only mark up registrations by $25 per name, saying it refuses to profit from .sucks. Presumably, therefore, it is selling sunrise names for $2,024. Of the registrars I checked that publish their prices on their web sites, Marcaria and 101domain are selling for $2,199. LexSynergy is priced in GBP that works out to $2,533 a year. Rebel.com has gone for $2,600 (including a $100 non-refundable application fee).

  • Daniel Negari Talks About .XYZ Domains on Fox Business

    DomainInvesting.com
    Daniel Negari, CEO of the .XYZ domain name registry, was a guest this morning Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo. The upcoming GoDaddy IPO provided the backdrop to the interview. The topic of discussion was primarily about .XYZ domain names, and Negari was able to chat about why someone would register them and what types of companies are buying .XYZ domain names. Negari also briefly discussed how the registry business works. The appearance on Fox Business was brief, but I am sure this was good (and free) exposure for the company. The video of the interview is embedded below. The post Daniel Negari Talks About .XYZ Domains on Fox Business appeared first on DomainInvesting.com. ...read more
