The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the nonprofit group that manages the Internet's "top level" domain name system, plans to vastly expand the domain name space from the 22 groups of names such as .com now available to Internet users to almost any name such as .bank or .angrybirds.The Coalition for Responsible Internet Domain Oversight says that ICANN's domain name plan will have costly implications for trademark owners, who could be forced to register their names in every new domain name launched or offer their own Internet address. ...Groups in the coalition include the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Association of Broadcasters and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as well as such companies as Adobe, Coca-Cola, Hewlett-Packard, Procter & Gamble, and Samsung.
