IP Community Critical of ICANN proposals

October 20,2007 ICANN Meeting, Los Angeles
QUOTE FROM ARTICLE: IP Community Critical Of Proposals On ICANN Agenda
Issues also heavily touch intellectual property issues and therefore are likely to lead to heated discussions. New TLDs face similar implications with regards to possible trademark or naming rights infringements. What is more, a draft by ICANN’s Generic Name Supporting Organisation (GNSO) on ICANN’s necessary evaluation of new TLD application requests also proposes checks on moral and public order - a task for which ICANN’s not fit, according to the Keep the Core Neutral Coalition (KTCN).

KTCN wants ICANN to “stay within its technical mandate and refrain from embedding particular national, regional, moral, or religious policy objectives into global rules over the use of language in domain names,” the organisation said in a Monday press release. It announced a plan to hand a petition to ICANN on 1 November and is soliciting signatures.

We knew there was going to be a lot of "politic$" going on behind the closed doors.

This quote caught my eye which backs up Verisign rights within the idn space.
"New TLDs face similar implications with regards to possible trademark or naming rights infringements".

Verisign have been registering idn.com and idn.net for nearly 8 years and they MUST have had a plan for them
within the IDN space. Additionally, Verisign has both ethical and legal responsiblity to those customers to protect
their interests in the "commercial" and "network" brands of each of the international languages they have sold.

Don't worry they also have a very distinct commercial interest of their own, which goes well beyond just the registries. These merely underpin much of their other business.

Agreed. Hopefully they can quickly establish some rules of law that will satisfy the issues at hand or this will be a very drawn out process. Another quote from the article that points up our discussion on Verisigns rights to all areas of the .com space.

Verisign haven't even dusted off their Siege Cannon yet.
