We are about to enter into the world of the .music realm, as the domain will soon be available for registration for the first time. In other words, “www.[yourname].music” will soon become a possibility. Constantine Roussos, the leader of DotMusic, is leading this charge. DotMusic wants to be the neutral administrator of the distribution of these domains. DotMusic’s goal: to clean up the online music community by allowing music artists, music professionals and music companies to claim the domains that are rightfully theirs. Now, DotMusic needs your help to push this community-based application across the finish line, to put an end to the common frustrations that music artists experience when they go to claim a domain, and find out that it has been taken by someone whose sole purpose is to sell it at a premium. Other DotMusic policies include mandating only legal music content, prohibiting spammy parking pages and suspending any .music domain with obvious mass copyright infringement. If DotMusic’s initiative doesn’t succeed, major players like Google and Amazon – who do not care about artists’ rights – will end up controlling the rights to these domains.
