ICA Legal Counsel Phil Corwin Joins Forces With Noted Domain Attorney Stevan Lieberman at Greenberg & Lieberman + AfternicDLS Announces Major Expansion 

Philip S. Corwin, the long time legal counsel for the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) and Founding Principal of Virtualaw LLC, has taken on an additional role with the well-known 

Washington, D.C. based firm Greenberg & Lieberman, LLC where noted domain attorney Stevan Lieberman has a thriving practice. Corwin has joined G&L in an Of Counsel capacity. 

Lieberman said, “We are delighted that Phil has chosen to forge a relationship with our firm. His long record of effective legislative and regulatory advocacy will allow us to better provide firm clients with the ability to influence critical policy decisions being made here in Washington. Phil is particularly well known for his past representation of innovative, cutting edge technology firms that raise novel intellectual property issues, including mp3.com and Sharman Networks (Kazaa). He has also doing an outstanding job serving as Counsel to the Internet Commerce Association, providing a voice for domain name investors and developers on Capitol Hill, as well as within ICANN."

Corwin said, "This association with Greenberg and Lieberman will provide my clients with the best possible representation regarding trademark and patent filings and prosecution, IP litigation, UDRP arbitrations, and Internet law matters, including registrar applications.  Additionally, the firm specializes in contracts, securities, US and international corporate formations, and other key business law functions.  No matter what their needs, our overall team will be able to provide a coordinated response of the highest quality.”

G&L Member Michael Greenberg added: “In addition to his Internet law and IP background, Phil also continues to represent some of the Nation’s major financial services trade groups. His lobbying expertise was recognized when he was chosen to serve as Chairman of the American Bar Association’s Section of Business Law Committee on Legislation. He also deals extensively with the media on clients’ behalf while helping to shape supportive public relations efforts in concert with clients’ communications specialists.”

The AfternicDLS has announced another major expansion of their domain listing service with a dozen new European registrar partners coming on board along with TierraNet (as a DLS Premium Partner), Internic.ca, Rebel.com, DomainsatCost.com and NameScout.com.

The new European partners include DaDaPro, EuroDNS and GroupNBT, a trio that collectively operates 12 separate registrars across Europe (Register.it, Nominalia.com, Names.co.uk, Amen.fr, Amen.pt, AmenWorld.nl, Register365.com, NetNames.com, Easily.co.uk , Speednames.com, Ascio.com and EuroDNS.com).

The registrars will deploy Afternic’s “Instant Transfer” technology, allowing domain buyers the opportunity to purchase a secondary market domain in the purchase path on the registrar’s website by placing the domain in their shopping cart and having the domain in their control within minutes. Combined, these registrars service millions of customers across Europe and worldwide. The new DLS partners will offer their customers access to millions of premium domain names and listing access to the AfternicDLS's global domain marketplace. 

NameMedia Senior Vice President and Afternic General Manager Jason Miner said, “The inclusion of these major registrars in DLS now gives Afternic a presence across Europe. This furthers the goal of creating a unified and efficient secondary market for domains. By bringing value and liquidity to the domain aftermarket we are helping to eliminate barriers to sale—increasing returns for domain sellers and better meeting the needs of domain buyers worldwide.”
