Jason Schaeffer co-founded NameSummit to provide a platform to discuss leading trends in branding, influencer marketing, social media, and specifically showcase the continuing evolution of domain names as an important part of a great brand or advertising campaign.
Before the advent of Instagram and Twitter, Jason was helping Fortune 100 Brands like NFL Properties and Pfizer protect their trademarks and online presence. Since then he has worked in the domain name industry at ESQwire.com as a leader in protecting and selling some of the world’s premier .COM domains and domain name portfolios.
He is also active in Registry/Registrar and ICANN Policy discussions. Today he is assisting DotMusic Ltd. in its quest to run, what will be a “game changer” – a safe, trusted, community-based gTLD for .MUSIC. The idea behind .MUSIC is to provide the platform to sell, share and distribute music in a way that benefits creators, protects their brand and their intellectual property.
Jason previously helped .TUBE secure the rights to operate by preparing and shepherding the application through the gTLD process; handing ICANN compliance; submitting an RFP and selecting the Registry Back-End Provider; building and managing global Registrar relationships; and sourcing and managing initial software, web development, and digital marketing partners for launch.
Complementing his many successful UDRP defenses, he has obtained a significant number of Reverse Domain Hijacking Decisions (RDNH) for ESQwire.com clients and is always looking to find ways to help clients protect their IP assets, domains, and bring new ideas to life. He looks forward to welcoming you to NameSummit and continuing the discussion.
