Dear Sirs
We are a German IP boutique representing numerous German and global companies 
and their intellectual property rights.
We anticipate that the introduction of an unlimited number of new gTLDs may 
provide vast opportunities for bad faith registration which will impact 
negatively on intellectual property owners. Moreover, consumers will be 
effected. Consumers will be confused and not only will consumers be likely to 
fall for fraudulent domain name use such as phishing etc.  Eventually, 
consumers will lose their trust into trademarks as guides in the more and more 
global market. This will leave consumers without guidance when buying goods or 
ICANN´s proposed Rights Protection Measures must be improved. In particular we 
suggest that the proposed URS is reviewed again: intellectual property owners 
need a mechanism to take down infringing sites within 14 days and without 
significant cost. We also request ICANN to invest in contract compliance to 
ensure that registry owners and registrars maintain accurate whois and do not 
warehouse domains. We support WIPO´s call for the URS and the PDDRP to be 
With kind regards.
Sincerely yours
Katja Grabienski
