The Internet Commerce Association (ICA) announced a members-only meet up to be held in Las Vegas this September. The date and location for this event has been finalized by the ICA. The event will be held at the Green Valley Ranch resort September 19 – 21, 2021. According to Google Maps, Green Valley Ranch appears to be a short drive from McCarran Airport in Las Vegas.

While the event is only open to ICA members, it is simple to sign up and become a member of this domain investing trade organization. New members are permitted to attend as well, presumably if they sign up for a membership in advance.

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.
