Herrick hosted the iBreakfast event "Master of Your Domain? ICANN's New Top Level Domain Program For Brands. ICANN's decision to authorize countless new generic top level domain names (gTLDs) will forever alter the way brands and entities are represented online. The "dot com" era will soon be replaced with a myriad of possibilities involving "dot brand" and "dot generic" domains - essentially "dot anything" if approved by ICANN after a vigorous application process. The implications for SEO and trademark protection are critical, and the opportunities presented to brands, industry associations - even investors - is exploding.
