ICANN Internet Governance: Is It Working?/Steve DelBianco & Braden Cox

(From 2007) Similarly, ICANN has simply taken too long to implement
internationalized domain names, a step that would improve Internet availability for
populations that don’t use the Roman alphabet character set. This failure could
prove fatal to the ICANN experiment if these populations and their governments
decide to implement their own non-Roman DNS.
An available Internet is one goal of the DNS—the integrity of domain
names is another. Unfortunately, the integrity of domain name services is being
undermined by unfair and deceptive practices.

Later in the paper, the authors give some examples of what they consider to be unfair and deceptive practices. For instance, "Parking of Generic Terms":

Quote:
Parking ads on otherwise unused sites like this is not only deceptive and
confusing to the customer, it clutters the Internet the same way that unsightly
billboards clutter the landscape along many of our nation's highways. This clutter
undermines the value of the Internet for legitimate businesses and organizations,
and misleads individuals searching for meaningful information.
Hmmm.

Billboards are a legitimate business. Just the mere fact of being "annoying" to some consumers does not make them illegitimate.

The regulation of billboards on US highways (which started with the Highway Beautification Act of 1965) is a surprisingly complicated subject. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highway_Beautification_Act, which has to be one of the most comprehensive Wikipedia articles I have ever run across. Debates that started with the passage of the act in 1965 are still unresolved today, almost 50 years later.

The question of Internet governance (ICANN, GAC, ITU, gTLDs, etc) seems simple by comparison. Who would have thought?

Unless the .com/net IDNs are rolled out as (FULL IDN) as they should have been, long ago, and given full email support,as they should have been, long ago...what other scenario could be expected.
Lets start a new ccTLD today, and fast track them all within 3 months.
IDN.com/net, even though you've been around for 10 years...PLEASE TAKE A SEAT.Ask anyone you know, if they know what an IDN is?
The answer is nobody knows.
McDonalds corporation, and some other companies have taken note, and proactively and diligently, made the steps required registering IDNs...in spite of ICANN or Verisign. ICANN, and your board members...you have failed.
Forget your highly polished video releases about celebrating IDN day...as Rod Beckstrom put it. (circa 2009) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdthisJbfEAAs long as the wineing and dining, posh hotel, grand conference locations, gravy train continues continues to roll....Why get it done!
Its a great GIG, lets keep it going as long as possible.
And Verisign waits on the sidelines with their thumbs up their _______, collecting yearly renewal fees (since 2001) from the sods that showed this venture was viable/possible from the start.
You invited us over for dinner, expected us to bring all the food, clean up afterwards, and tossed us out, as soon as we finished wiping down the kitchen counters.
You guys Stink! LOL

Dumb excerpt from article:

"Parking of Generic Terms
This fast-growing practice involves registering generic names, such as "consulting.com”, which have little value in themselves..."

Hahaha, who are these clowns

Please tell us how you really feel.

We are all there Steve. I've had enough of this horseshit too. There isn't a single reason the top gTLDs can't be fast tracked in the major languages.

Then they have the nerve to call us out? Seriously?

Get your shit in order before you call your investors out assholes.

+1 from me.

Cheers

"This article was originally prepared as testimony for a hearing before the
Committee on Energy and Commerce in the U.S. House of Representatives on
September 21, 2006."


It must have been updated in 2007 since there are references to 2007 in it.

I am wondering where they got their data from.

"Since almost half of all Web users prefer to type Web site names directly
into their browsers,"


Half? I wish.

If the alternative to parking is a blank 404 page how does this serve the user?

Saying that 'consulting.com' has little inherent value flies in the face of the entire secondary market. I guess they should pack up their bags and stop buying and selling.

Someone should tell Sedo that their business is imaginary.
