ICANN: Outstanding TLD Controversies (.WINE & .VIN new gTLDs)

DNS POLICY NOTES FOR JANUARY 7, 2015
Collected news and opinion about the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the domain name business, Internet governance, and miscellaneous other cyberlaw topics for January 7, 2015. The star of the show today is Bloomberg BNA legal editor Joseph Wright's article "15 Policy Points to Watch at ICANN in 2015," which ran last week in our Electronic Commerce & Law Report.
Extract: "The European Commission has promised to go down swinging despite ICANN's determination that applications for .wine and .vin will proceed to processing despite what Europe sees as insufficient protections for distinctive geographic identifiers, such as Champagne".
