Facebook are allowing users to chose user names for the first time i.e. the users URL will be for example.

Which makes IP Freely think mark infringement! It's one of my favourite topics and one that Facebook have already prepared for with a pre-registration process allowing rights holders to list their trade marks and bar others from registering them as names. The catch? You have to already be a member to do so. Out-law have written more about it here.

Out-law also report that "Consumers think limitless domains will muddy internet waters", why people bother making such surveys I don't know.


IP Freely is having considerable trouble in creating new posts at the moment hence the lack of recent posts (although I have also been very busy with other projects), as soon as Blogger lets me post you will hear from me!


  1. guest blogger invitation


    This is Rose writing from I visited your blog and liked your content.

    Would you be interested to send us a guest post on any of the issues related to the topics that you cover in your blog. We will publish it in our site

    In return with each guest blog we will give one link in the author's byline back to your blog. We only ask that the guest post ( we prefer it be a news coverage, sources can be Google News, CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo News, BBC and others) be a unique story and not be published in your blog.

    HULIQ is indexed by Google News and Google requires that the length of the unique news is at least 5 paragraphs. We desire it to be at least 6 paragraphs if possible. And that all need to be a unique content. Once you send us a new story totally unique we will immediately publish it with you link in it, and within 15 minutes it should be indexed by Google News.

    Also, please structure author byline as follows:

    author's name:
    author's e-mail:
    author's blog url:

    Please let me know if you may have any questions about

    If you want to consult the topic with me first that's perfectly fine as well.

    Many thanks
