ICANN, copyright infringement, and “the public interest” (new gTLDs)

Extract: "ICANN put a new provision in its contract with the operators of these new top-level domains (the “registries”) containing various “Public Interest Commitents” (PICs) the registries had to undertake: in particular, registries had to promise that they would only deal with domain name “registrars” (who are the entities that sell domain names to the public) who had included, in their contracts with end-users like you and me, a provision prohibiting those end-users".
