Director Monica Riva Talley will be speaking at WTR’s Brand Protection Online in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Monica is a moderator on the panel, “Domain name management: Navigating a changing landscape.”

As the domain name environment continues to expand, rights protection mechanisms (RPMs) are under scrutiny and new risks are emerging. Brand owners need to be prepared and ready to deal with the implications. The panel will discuss:

  • The future of new gTLDs: what is in store for brand protection
  • How the RPMs review could result in a new enforcement landscape
  • Balancing freedom of speech and right to enforce: when websites go rogue
  • Determining when action is unavoidable and when it would be a risk
