AFFIRMATION OF COMMITMENTS (US DoC and ICANN)

"5. DOC recognizes the importance of global Internet users being able to use the Internet in their local languages and character sets, and endorses the rapid introduction of internationalized country code top level domain names (ccTLDs), provided related security, stability and resiliency issues are first addressed. Nothing in this document is an expression of support by DOC of any specific plan or proposal for the implementation of new generic top level domain names (gTLDs) or is an expression by DOC of a view that the potential consumer benefits of new gTLDs outweigh the potential costs."

"9.3 Promoting competition, consumer trust, and consumer choice: ICANN will ensure that as it contemplates expanding the top-level domain space, the various issues that are involved (including competition, consumer protection, security, stability and resiliency, malicious abuse issues, sovereignty concerns, and rights protection) will be adequately addressed prior to implementation. If and when new gTLDs (whether in ASCII or other language character sets) have been in operation for one year, ICANN will organize a review that will examine the extent to which the introduction or expansion of gTLDs has promoted competition, consumer trust and consumer choice, as well as effectiveness of (a) the application and evaluation process, and (b) safeguards put in place to mitigate issues involved in the introduction or expansion."

yes, beckstgrom continues in another interview with DomainNameWire ""Section 9.3 of the AOC calls for ICANN to address many issues prior to releasing new top level domains. It’s unclear if this will slow down the introduction of new top level domains. However, “fast track” IDNs, which are essentially IDN ccTLDs, appear to be full steam ahead.

“It looks like the IDNs are tracking very much on time and feedback seems to be ubiquitously positive,” said Beckstrom.



Non ccTLD IDNs will be introduced as part of the new gTLD process.""

I think he may be on TV tomorrow, on Power Lunch: The CEO of ICANN Rod Beckstrom is scheduled to appear on CNBC’s “Power Lunch” at around 1:15 to 2 PM EST. http://www.thedomains.com/2009/09/30...cnbc-thursday/
