.XXX Opt-Out Deadline Fast Approaching!

Trademark owners who do not want new “.xxx” Internet domain names to be based on their registered marks should file their blocking applications as soon as possible. Although the formal deadline is October 28, some registrars are now insisting applications be filed several days early so that they have an opportunity to verify the claimed trademark rights.
 


Details about blocking .xxx domain names can be found on our website at www.fr.com/gtld-update, and more information about .xxx in general is available at www.about.xxx.


The cost to file a so-called “Sunrise B” blocking application varies by registrar, but appears to typically fall in the $200 – $250 range. A list of registrars who are accepting applications for .xxx names can be found at www.about.xxx/registrars.


For more information on the .xxx domain names or the new gTLDs, please contact your Fish & Richardson attorney or:
