Protecting Domain Names Internationally
We recently received an e-mail from an international domain registrar that our domain names with international extensions are being acquired by another company and that they are giving us an opportunity to defend our brand. They gave us 3 days to buy. An interesting article (Beware Domain Checking at Network Solutions) Kevin found while researching the issue. MarkMonitor offers services to companies to manage an international portfolio of domains.
We have decided not to protect some of our non-product domain names in other countries while individual business units are making a decision for their respective brands.
