Working alongside lawyers that have been instrumental in devising the ICANN’s application process, Sensirius and its partners will make sure your projects fits any and all the ICANN requirements, shaping your organization’s answers along with those of our technical experts to make the application a mere formality. 

Our legal partners have assisted multiple registries in the following matters:

  • the establishment, incorporation and structuring of the organization, including their operations;
  • drafting of policies in relation to the launch processes (rights protection mechanisms), domain name registration terms and conditions, WHOIS, “Acceptable Use” and various dispute resolution policies;
  • drafting of registry and registrar agreements;
  • reviewing and/or drafting of marketing and outreach plans, information brochures and technical memorandums;
  • managing of rights protection processes for TLDs (in total about 450,000 claims relating to intellectual property rights have been reviewed);
  • advising on technical implementation of the above policies and agreements;
  • drafting of policies in relation to the implementation of IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names);
  • rafting of disaster recovery and registry fail-over plans; and
  • assistance in the execution of many of these aspects.

The main goal of a new gTLD project is to manage the extension in a stable and profitable manner, but this requires many more efforts and steps than the Draft Applicant Guidebook may suggest. Through the years our legal partner have accrued the knowhow of the different business aspects, including the economic and financial sides of implementing, launching and managing a top level domain.
