Civil Society Cautions Against ICANN Giving Governments Veto Over Geographic Domains

Extract: "The proposal also re-asserts the controversial 2007 GAC Principle that requires gTLDs to "respect national sensitivities regarding terms with national, cultural, geographic and religious significance." The civil society statement said the proposal sets a dangerous precedent for building government censorship into the DNS. "In other words, it is a bad policy for Internet freedom that should not be adopted," concluded the coalition".

Reminder:
  • Paris residents can register their .PARIS domain name with OVH;
  • To participate in a Sunrise Period, Brands should submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse and check the calendar;
  • To promote new gTLDs "a different way", contact Jovenet Consulting.
