"Fortress ICANN" No Longer Able to Shield Itself from Accountability

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
Extract: "The unanimous IRP Panel of 3 distinguished adjudicators declared that both the actions and inactions of ICANN's Board with respect to the application of DotConnect Africa Trust for the .AFRICA gTLD were inconsistent with ICANN's Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. The Panel found that both ICANN's Board, and its constituent body, the GAC, breached their obligations to act transparently and in conformity with procedures that ensured fairness".
