02.21.12

The Dallas Morning News enlisted the expertise of Intellectual Property Partner Kay Lyn Schwartz to discuss the steps companies should take to protect their brands following the approval of .xxx domains by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a private, non-profit organization responsible for managing and coordinating the Domain Name System.

In regard to buying triple-X domain names through domain registrars, Ms. Schwartz said, "Every company should consider it, especially if the existence of a triple-X site using their trademark or brand would harm them. For the headaches it can avoid in the future, it's very inexpensive. "

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
