IDN.IDN Verisign (cont.)

Verisign's policy on IDN.IDN implementation, and the rights protection format they expect to follow, has been very explicit, with a key objective: "Avoid costs to consumers and businesses from purely defensive registrations in the new gTLDs"

"A registrant in one of the IDN TLDs, or a registrant of an or, will have the sole right, but not be required to register the exact same second level name across all or any of our IDN TLDs, including the .com or .net TLDs as applicable."
