Advertising industry vs. ICANN

http://www.cctld.ru/en/news/digest/detail.php?ID=1722



The Interactive Advertising Bureau, said to be representing over 500 companies including Facebook, Google, eBay and Microsoft, demands ICANN to stop its new gTLD program.
A few weeks ago, the same request came from the Association of National Advertisers, which threatened to lobby Congress and to take ICANN to court over the same matter. The situation is a bit different this time: ANA represents brand owners, while IAB’s members are said to be responsible for selling over 80% of online advertising in the US. Among its members are AOL, Digg, Amazon, the BBC, Bebo, CNN, Ziff Davis, LinkedIn, Time Warner, Slate, Thomson-Reuters, IDG, the Huffington Post and many others.
“ICANN’s potentially momentous change seems to have been made in a top-down star chamber. There appears to have been no economic impact research, no full and open stakeholder discussions, and little concern for the delicate balance of the Internet ecosystem”, says Randall Rothenberg, CEO of the IAB.
At the moment, five associations related to advertising and marketing demand pretty much the same from ICANN: to prevent new top-level domains from going live. They are ANA, IAB, as well as World Federation of Advertisers, Association of American Advertising Agencies and UK-based Direct Marketing Association. ICANN, on the other hand, still holds its cards — probably because no association took the matter to court yet.
