The Dot-XXX Story
by: Company Press Release
(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) -- Despite the upheaval of the past few years, major changes in the adult entertainment industry donít occur all that often. The most recent truly seismic shift was the emergence of the World Wide Web as a dominant distribution channel. As the adult industry continues to mature along with the internet, new opportunities arise to challenge even the most stalwart porn purveyors. The newest provokes both curses and praise among the faithful: Dot-XXX. Itís real. Itís unavoidable. Itíll be a game-changer.
Donít settle for misinformation, half-truths and suspicion. Be informed.
No matter where you fall on the vast spectrum of opinions about ICANNís latest Top Level Domain, you owe it to yourself and your business to get the facts. Should you buy a dot-XXX domain? What could happen to your brand if you donít? Are there as-yet-unrevealed benefits to dot-XXX ownership? Liabilities? How much will the darn things cost, anyway? And whatís all this hullaballoo about "responsible business practices?"
On Saturday, June 25, from 1 p.m. until no questions remain, YNOT Summit will present a very special up-close-and-personal look at dot-XXX. Far from the run-of-the-mill panel discussion trade show attendees have endured ad nauseum since 2005, "Pros and Cons of Dot-XXX" will blend rational discussion with audience participation, allowing attendees to pose their most pressing questions directly to some of the new domain spaceís most ardent champions Ö and some of its biggest skeptics. Moderator M.Christian will preside over a balanced consideration of both sides, including some surprising revelations. Scheduled participants include YNOT Group LLC President Connor Young, veteran industry journalist and AVN Senior Editor Tom Hymes, attorney Eric M. Bernstein and ICM Registry Sales Director Vaughn Liley. Audience participation is strongly encouraged.
"A lot of people are trying to decide what dot-XXX means for their business," Young said. "This presentation will give everyone the details they need to make an informed decision, whichever way they decide to go. The expert panel is diverse, and weíve all agreed to limit the amount of bloodletting on the stage to a minimum."
Added Liley, "With the launch of the registry less than 80 days away, I look forward to informing community members of the benefits of dot-XXX names and how and when to apply for them."
