New association to further interests of Canadian domainers.
A new domainer association is launching at the Domain Convergence conference in Niagara Falls next week.
Domain Owners Association of Canada (DOAC) aims to protect and increase the value of its members’
domain names. Peter Maxymych, President of Emall.ca, is founding the organization.
In a statement about the launch, Domain Convergence organizer Frank Michlick said, “We are looking forward to helping launch the ground-breaking association for domain owners. Canadiandomain name owners have contributed immensely to the domain name industry and it is comforting to know an organization will have our backs.â€
Although the Internet Commerce Association represents the interests of domainers across the globe, I’m not surprised that an interest group specific to Canada is being formed. After all, each country has legal nuances that must be addressed. DOAC may also help to bring a fragmented Canadian domainer community together for purposes other than law.
The association’s web site will launch next week at doac.ca.
