Decrypting what ICANN Africa Strategy is Not

Extract: "I made clear to the African and Global ICANN community between the failed "Africa Strategy" in Dakar, which encompassed a rough call to reserve the .Africa gTLD for the AUC, so as to delegate it to a structure that the AUC choose (that included ZACR and the African Community kinship) versus what the new ICANN Africa Strategy is, and should be. We called to dismiss any reference to a .Africa gTLD".

Reminder:
  • Africa residents will soon be able to register their .AFRICA domain name with GoDaddy;
  • 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.
