I've always had an interest in and followed decisions pertaining to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"). Perhaps my interest stems from the fact that, as a young lawyer fresh out of law school, nobody really thought I had much knowledge or experience--except in the area of Internet law. It was the very fact that I was young that gave people confidence in my understanding of the laws in this area of practice. So I ran with it and determined that I would live up to the reputation that apparently preceded me.
And here today more than eight years later, I am still practicing in the area of Internet law, enforcing my clients' rights as they pertain to domain names, keyword advertising, use of Google AdWords, hyperlinking, framing, and use of metatags. I have the privilege of serving on the International Trademark Association's Whois Subcommittee to the Internet Committee, a group that develops policy pertaining to use of proxy servers and other privacy mechanisms in connection with registration of domain names.
And now, I am launching this blog. Once a skeptic of blogs, I find myself admiring those making the effort to provide the valuable service of a well-written blog. I hope you find this blog to be informative, thought provoking, and entertaining. Happy reading and please share your thoughts.
