Corporate Domain Name Management
In September 2000, Coles Myer was forced to take legal action against a Mexican cyber squatter who had registered the name www.coles-myer.com then linked it to the homepage of rival Woolworths Limited.
Registering, managing and protecting domain names is a time consuming task and the margin for error is high.
What can go wrong?
- Failure to register or renew names on time
- Failure to register company brand names
- Lack of planning to prevent cyber-squatting
- Misinterpretation of the different rules and regulations that apply for different country codes (ie: au; uk ; nz)
- Lack of understanding about new Top Level Domains like .biz and .info
- Failure to protect brands in global domain spaces such as .com, .org and .net.
