EUROPEAN COMMISSION STUDY ON EVALUATION OF PRACTICES FOR COMBATING SPECULATIVE AND ABUSIVE .EU DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATIONS
02/09/2020
The Study which was recently published by the European Commission and to which ECTA actively contributed, evaluates the cooperation between relevant EU bodies and aims at preventing and fighting speculative and abusive registrations of domain names, as well as providing simplified administrative procedures, especially for SMEs.

The collaboration among the .eu Registry (EURid), the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and other Union agencies (in particular Europol) is working as intended, and suggestions to further improve it are provided in the document. The Study also recommends possible simplifications to the .eu registration and other administrative procedures, in order to facilitate the registration and fight speculative and abusive domain name registrations in the .eu domain space. In particular, improvements of the registration procedure are recommended by comparison of the .eu Registry’s procedures with identified EU registry operators in Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Italy and United Kingdom (.be, .dk, .hu, .it, .uk).

Our specialised ECTA Internet Committee has been actively involved in preparing ECTA contribution to the Study, whose findings will help to adopt informed policy actions to fight and prevent speculative and abusive registration of domain names.

If you are interested in being part of this or another ECTA Committee, do not miss the ECTA General Committee Election coming up next spring!
