Madrid Hopes To Be Summer Destinations

A new geographic TLD plans to launch this summer, .madrid. It begins its Sunrise phase on July 16, 2019, and runs through October 3rd, 2019. This phase will not be first come, first served. Several Limited Registration phases aimed towards local entities and local trademark holders will run concurrently prior to General Availability opening on October 19, 2019.

CSC will continue to provide updates on the rules and requirements for the launch as information becomes available. If you have any questions or interest in the TLD, please contact your Client Service Partner.

Protecting Your Intellectual Property from Domain, Brand and Logo Infringements

Protecting your intellectual property (IP) is important to brands across the globe. When fraudsters impersonate or use a company’s brand name and logo, they not only infringe on a brand’s IP rights, but also devalue and dilute the brand and cut revenue.

Join CSC’s senior brand analyst, Chris Lincoln, for this recorded webinar that will delve into key measures and best practices to protect your IP.
