The full text of the Policy is available at: ftp://rs.internic.net/policy/internic.domain.policy The following summarizes the significant changes between Revision 01 and Revision 02: Text and format edited with the objective of making the policy easier to read and understand. Introduction incorporates statements that previously had been scattered throughout the Policy, and specifies: Second-level domain names are registered on "first-come, first-serve" basis. Network Solutions does not determine legality of domain name registrations. Applicant represents that registration of the domain name does not interfere with the rights of any third party, and that the domain name is not being registered for any unlawful purpose. Network Solutions does not act as arbiter of disputes. The Policy does not confer any rights upon complainants. Section 3: Indemnification is limited to loss or damages awarded as the result of or related to registration and use of a domain name. Section 5(b): Before requesting Network Solutions to take action pursuant to the Policy, trademark owners are required to notify domain name registrants that their registration and use of the domain name violates the legal rights of the trademark owner. Section 5(c): Network Solutions will only take action under the Policy if they are provided both a certified copy of a federal trademark registration certificate and a copy of the notice provided to the domain name registrant. Section 6(b): In those instances when a domain name registrant is able to continue their use of the domain name, they are not required to provide additional indemnification beyond that already specified in the Policy. Additionally, the bonding requirement has been deleted. Section 6(c): Network Solutions will accept a domain name registrant's trademark only if it was registered before the date of Network Solutions' request for proof of ownership or any third party's notification of a dispute to the registrant, whichever is earlier. Section 6(e): The timing of the "Hold" status is clarified. Section 7: In those instances when either the domain name registrant or the trademark owner file suit against the other regarding the registration and use of the domain name prior to the domain name being placed on "Hold," Network Solutions will not place the domain name on "Hold" and will deposit control of the domain name into the registry of the court. Section 7(a): When a domain name registrant files a law suit against a trademark owner, Network Solutions will waive the indemnification requirement. Section 7(c): Network Solutions will abide by all court orders without being named as a party to a law suit. Section 7 (d): If named as a party to a law suit, Network Solutions reserves the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate. Section 9: First class mail replaces Certified Mail as an acceptable method of providing notice. In addition, e-mail has been deleted. ...
