ICA to Host Domain Name Leasing Panel

7

Domain name leasing is a popular type of domain name transaction. A domain name lease can be a great source of ongoing revenue for a domain investor, but a fair amount of thought and discussion is necessary before finalizing the deal. When one party is using a domain name owned by another party, it is essential to have a solid legal agreement in place to protect both parties.

The Internet Commerce Association will be hosting a virtual panel on Wednesday, May 12, to discuss domain name leasing. Attorney Zak Muscovitch, attorney Jason Schaeffer, attorney Stevan Lieberman, and domain investor Nat Cohen will participate on the panel. There will also be a question and answer period for participants to ask panelists domain name lease-related questions.
