  • Less than a month after announcing its plan to abandon U.S. protection of the open Internet in 2015, the White House has stepped back from the abyss. Following objections by Bill Clinton, a warning letter from 35 Republican senators, and critical congressional hearings, the administration now says the change won’t happen for years, if ever. […]

  • Less than a month after announcing its plan to abandon U.S. protection of the open Internet in 2015, the White House has stepped back from the abyss. Following objections by Bill Clinton, a warning letter from 35 Republican senators, and critical congressional hearings, the administration now says the change won’t happen for years, if ever. […]

  • Representatives Todd Rokita, John Shimkus (IL-15), and Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) introduced the Domain Openness Through Continued Oversight Matters (DOTCOM) Act today in response to the Department of Commerce announcement that the U.S. would relinquish its oversight of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS) to a poorly-defined ‘global Internet community.’ “The internet is the single greatest […]

  • Count former President Bill Clinton among those who are skeptical of the new Obama administration plan to give up Internet oversight authority. Clinton talked in some detail about why the U.S. should retain oversight over Internet domain names and addresses during a panel at a weekend meeting sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative. Noting that […]

  • This is Part 4 of our series of articles on the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) and how it effects all of the new gTLD extensions. Unlike the Uniform Domain Name Resolution Policy (UDRP), which still governs all of the old gTLD extensions, a losing Domain Name Investor is NOT required to transfer the domain […]

  • This is the Third Part of a Series on the URS which governs all new gTLDs. The URS (Uniform Rapid Suspension System) is intended to offer a lighter complement to the existing UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy). All of the new gTLD extensions are subject to the URS Rules. If you are going […]

  • Back in 2011, I published an article about Paul Ceglia suing Facebook for his alleged shares due him by Mark Zuckerberg. See http://neusnews.com/?p=348. Ceglia lost that law suit and now Facebok is suing him for Fraud. Paul Ceglia, the man who claims he’s entitled to half of Facebook Inc., lost a bid to throw out […]

  • Last week we wrote Part I of a series of columns on the new gTLDs being subject to the URS Rules: The URS (Uniform Rapid Suspension System) is intended to offer a lighter complement to the existing UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy). All of the new gTLD extensions are subject to the URS […]

  • A Brooklyn man who registered domain names related to real estate mogul Donald Trump must pay $32,000 damages, a judge ruled Friday. J. Taikwok Yung, a self-described “domainer” developed four websites — trumpmumbai.com, trumpindia.com, trumpbeijing.com, and trumpbudhabi.com — parodying the well-known businessman and providing commentary, often disparaging, on Trump and his television shows “The Apprentice” […]

  • The URS (Uniform Rapid Suspension System) is intended to offer a lighter complement to the existing UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy). All of the new gTLD extensions are subject to the URS Rules. If you are going to invest in any of the new gTLDs that will be flooding the market, you need […]
