LexisNexis Unveils Guide to Domain Name Law


LexisNexis® Launches Essential New Guide to Domain Name Law

LexisNexis, the leading legal information database, launched a new guide focused on domain name law.  As domain name ownership becomes more mainstream, it has become essential for attorneys to be knowledgeable about various aspects of domain name law.  From trademark owners protecting their rights to domain name owners protecting their valuable assets, legal representation is more important now than it has ever been in the past.

Some topics covered in the new guide include:

“Formal and informal dispute procedures, with analysis
Extensions currently associated with each jurisdiction
Registry contact information
Access to lists of known accredited registrars
Registration and transfer processes and procedures
Renewal terms and processes
Chapter appendices setting out forms, registry policies, examples, and other hard-to-find, practical information
Thousands of direct links to domain registries and other important sources of information on the Web”

    As a contributor to “McGrady on Domain Names: A Global Guide to Disputes, Registration, and Maintenance” and colleague of author Paul D. McGrady, Jr., I can say first-hand that this is the most comprehensive legal treatise out there that addresses Internet and domain name related issues. This is a practical and effective tool for attorneys who deal with these matters. Copies are available at http://www.lexisnexis.com/bookstore.
