Sorry it's OT, but I needed additional input from IT centric people...
My COO came to me about registering our domain name in every major country
based on GDP. As in: ourproduct.it, ourproduct.ca, ourproduct.au etc. etc.
about 37 countries. I hinted that maybe it was overkill, that in some cases it could require actually
having a business presence in some of those countries ( we don't.. yet )
besides, the first thing everyone seems to try is... .com. I understand the
concept of locking down the trademark, but where do you stop?
He wants to secure them for local distributers, I suggested a simple reirect
from ourproduct.com/it and ourproduct.com/ca to the local distributers...
He wants me to .."run it by some of your IT friends.." and get a consensus....
