Experts call for a moratorium on use of new internet domain .health

In a commentary published in the open access journal Globalization and Health, the authors - led by Tim Mackey of the Global Health Policy Institute – call for a moratorium on use of the new internet gTLD domain .health. They argue that ICANN's "lack of adequate stakeholder participation and…transparency" has fueled an awards process that disregards the public's interest in reliable health information in the interest of "contracting .health to the highest bidder."
