New report says domain name registrants should avoid New gTLDs

EFF and Public Knowledge released a whitepaper titled Which Internet registries offer the best protection for domain owners?

It turns out that not every top-level domain is created equal when it comes to protecting the domain holder’s rights. Depending on where you register your domain, a rival, troll, or officious regulator who doesn’t like what you’re doing with it could wrongly take it away, or could unmask your identity as its owner—even if they are from overseas.

To help make it easier to sort the .best top-level domains from the .rest, EFF and Public Knowledge have gotten together to provide this guide to inform you about your choices. There’s no one best choice, since not every domain faces the same challenges. But with the
right information in hand, you’ll be able to make the choice that makes sense for you.

These are some of the main problems discussed in the whitepaper:

  • Trademark Clearinghouse
  • New gTLDs
  • Copyright Bullies
  • Protection against overseas speech regulators
  • Privacy protection

No matter what business you have decided to be in, there are always going to be someone who wants to take it away from you. Whether they feel like you have infringed upon their territory and hurt their bottom line, or they are just stirring up trouble with regulators and the like. People will be people no matter where they are. Protect yourself and your business with all means necessary.

I'm not surprised that not as many companies are worried about protection for domain owner as people think. Thank goodness for the people who do try to keep the owners protected and spread awareness.

People will be people no matter where they are.

That's the main thing to remember here. We may have different currencies, but those currencies represent money which holds a universal truth: Everyone wants more and will do devious things to get more.
