I posted a short piece on the trouble brewing within ICANN and the GAC over protection for Geographical Indications in the second level domain of new (and possibly existing) TLDs at http://iplawye.rs/1qXtL29.
Please have a look and let me know what you think of this development. Is France right? Has it the right approach to finding a solution? Will Representative Anna Eshoo’s belated intervention make any difference? (You can follow her at https://twitter.com/RepAnnaEshoo)
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
