Why Read This Report

Most companies have been looking at the upcoming availability of generic top-level domains (gTLDs) as a brand and trademark protection issue rather than as a significant new business opportunity. Those firms that don't take action now could find themselves at a three-year disadvantage to major competitors. The cost and effort to apply for a gTLD is significant, so CMOs must assess this opportunity from a strategic perspective and drive their firms' position.
