Clarivate research reveals that organizations around the world increasingly consider domain names to be IP assets. IP owners must implement appropriate strategies to protect these assets, including protecting consumers from infringing websites and phishing attacks.
In today’s increasingly online and increasingly multinational world, organizations need to take a holistic approach to establishing and protecting their brand on the internet. Singapore-based organizations looking to expand to Malaysia or Indonesia, for example, need to consider registering .my or .id domains before they are taken by competitors, counterfeiters, or other nefarious actors. The expanding domain name system (DNS) now includes generic top-level domains (gTLDs) like .asia, .xyz, and .online, bringing more opportunity for IP owners and bad actors alike.
In conjunction with this year’s IP Week @ SG 2021, panelists will discuss the appropriate role of organizations like registrars, registries, ICANN, WIPO, and country-code TLD operators like SGNIC, and various resources available for IP owners. Expert guest speakers will also discuss smart strategies for establishing and protecting these valuable online IP assets, as well as enforcement remedies to protect consumers from confusion and abuse.
