In a market characterised by intense competition and change, domains are key to establishing brand identity. They also form the core of a broader business strategy and therefore must be protected at all costs. But what are the best ways to approach domain management and security? How does this fit into the broader brand protection strategy? And how do different elements, such as dealing with infringement, fraud and brand abuse, affect one another?
