    Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) Proposed nexus change for .us
    posted by tbyfield on Friday November 08 2002, @04:36AM

    NeuStar has announced that the group responsible for guiding policy on the .us TLD, aptly named the ".US Policy Council," has "voted to post" a proposed change to the .us Nexus Dispute Policy and Rules. Under the change, "a Complainant [could] recover a domain name if that domain name is registered by a person or entity that fails to meet the usTLD Nexus Requirements and such failure to meet the requirements is not cured within thirty (30) days." There's a two-week public comment period, ending 20 November. The full announcement is below.


    Notice of Proposed Changes. On October 8, 2002, the .US Policy Council voted to post the following proposed changes to the .US Nexus Dispute Policy and Rules enabling a Complainant to recover a domain name if that domain name is registered by a person or entity that fails to meet the usTLD Nexus Requirements and such failure to meet the requirements is not cured within thirty (30) days.

    Public Comment Invited. Public comment is invited on the proposed changes to the Nexus Dispute Policy and Rules below. Comments should be sent by e-mail to US-List-Admin@Neustar.biz no later than November 20, 2002.

    See http://www.neustar.us/policies/nexus_changes.html to link to the Proposed Changes.

    As a reminder, the .us TLD has its own public list forum. For more information, please go to http://www.neustar.us/forum/index.html .

    User #3553 Info
    I'm not clear why, as a non american holder of some .us domains, I should be significantly more concerned as a result of this proposed change?

    I expected all along I might have to hand a domain over if a trademark owner came along.
