interviews, Twitter (#inta15) roundup
and photos from many of the INTA and affiliate receptions.
Away from the formal sessions, one of the big talking points
was the visibility of the .sucks gTLD, which was being
promoted to registrants by a mobile billboard (photo, left, by
John Eastwood), handouts and free condoms.
Was it effective if ruthless marketing by registry NIC, or
nothing more than trade mark extortion? No doubt we will be
reporting much more about .sucks in the weeks to come.
Hall was also busy, and Managing IP’s booth
(right) provided copies of our silver
anniversary issue, supplements,
handbooks and a chance to meet our editors. We were also
offering those listed as IP
Stars the opportunity to have their photo taken and
featured on the magazine’s cover.
Next year the INTA Annual Meeting will be in Orlando,
Florida from May 21 to 25. In the meantime, the Leadership
Meeting in November will be in Panama City. Read our
preview to find out more about both events.
