Keeping up with the dot-anythings

For the past several weeks, our colleagues at Technology Law Source have been working hard to keep readers apprised of developments related to The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ new generic top-level domain (gTLD) program. This program, which is essentially redefining the face of the Internet, is likely to impact any business — or, indeed, any entity — with a web presence. If you haven’t been able to keep up with the hundreds of gTLDs already delegated this year, download this hot-off-the-press e-book: Protecting Your Brand in a New gTLD World.

You also may want to subscribe to Technology Law Source (use the “Subscribe by email” prompt in the left column of the site) to receive weekly updates about the evolution of the gTLD program and the dot-anythings launching each month.

PWMA Briefing on Appellate Practice

From time to time we like to pass along educational opportunities that may be of interest to our subscribers. I am including details on an upcoming event that members of our Appellate and Supreme Court Practice are offering on the benefits of amicus advocacy before the Ohio Supreme Court.

Too often, the Ohio Supreme Court decides issues that affect an industry statewide without first having heard from the industry itself. Trade associations and companies can fill this gap by filing “friend of the court” briefs in Supreme Court cases that affect them. To learn more about how your organization can be part of this process, please join Kathleen Trafford, Brad Hughes, and Dennis Hirsch of our Appellate Practice Group on April 8, 2014 for a breakfast briefing. Using a roundtable format, they plan to cover the benefits of amicus advocacy, strategies for effective amicus advocacy, and the rules governing “friend of the court” briefs.
