Reminder: .xxx Blocking Process


As a follow-up to our earlier post (Domain Name Update: .xxx Blocking Process), this is a reminder that on Wednesday, September 7, 2011, the “Sunrise B” period will commence to permit the owners of registered trade-marks to block their marks from becoming part of a .XXX domain name. The opt-out process blocks eligible trade-marks at the .XXX registry so these trade-marks cannot be registered by others.  As an example, Microsoft might make use of this procedure to block the registration of “” as a domain name. This Sunrise period runs for 52 days until Friday, October 28, 2011. By that date, trade-mark owners must submit their Reservation Request under the Sunrise B procedure.
