Recordings and transcripts from RIGF.asia (appr 4 months ago)

Plenary 3 [Recorded Video] [Transcript]
IDN governance and policy for an equitable and diverse multilingual Internet

_______________________________


This round, in effect, where a few hundred applicants are expected to apply of which only a small
pool will be IDNs, because it costs a lot of money, and you are not getting too many applicants. So
what's going to happen is the big incumbent registries probably won't even be competed on this,
because no one takes the risk. They will end up protecting the sound and meaning versions of this.

Once that happens, when the other 500 primarily ASCII English deployments go forward, they get
approved over the next year or whatever, they would follow the same game and the same rule. They
will say that we are incumbent registries and just applied for .sports, but now I can block anybody
else from getting .sports in every other language or meaning thereof, .athletics or whatsoever. What
happens by default could be this round pegged at 200,000 plus or more, real costs are going to be
much higher, which only richer, non IDN native people can apply for, will end up getting all the best
concepts in the world. People have a few years to think about the concepts

Early bird gets the worm. Be it in the creation of the internet (Al Gore) top level domains (Network Solutions) or registering on idnforums.com (Rubber Duck).

Re: Recordings and transcripts from RIGF.asia (appr 4 months ago)

The second and last category of what was discussed is broadly in the issue of when IDNs are going to
be -- the remaining policy issues, if you read the guidebook very carefully, you'll find clauses and
page this, that, deep down where things were written in one way before, but it's been changed
because different people with powers, businesses, trademarks and so on. So, they have changed
things and the current version that is about to go has many issues as such. The worst one is the one
intended to protect the incumbent registries, which is that the incumbent registries, .com, et cetera,
and the gTLD space, are now protected for sound, meaning and also visual similarity.

Early on, years ago, people agreed visual similarity should not be allowed across scripts, but not
sound and meaning, but that has been changed back to the point where basically, if someone were
to apply for a sound and meaning that is similar to a .com in some other language, there's so many
words that have the same meaning, to some many different versions of the meaning that was
discussed, so many different sounds like in Chinese, different thing that is could go back just to one
sound, all that could be, just for a few thousand dollars, an applicant to get into the game. But a few
thousand dollars can be objected by the incumbents. So nobody is going to apply for them.

Yoav Keren (Domainthenet alternate root seller) gives what can possibly be considered video testimony which proves he is well aware of the misleading practices he is involved with for years + a bonus threat directed pretty much at ICANN/the world.

Beginning on 30:19

Yoav Keren if feeling the noose closing on his neck… trying to make a case why he should keep his alternate root and keep the transliteration of the .net and .com.

Talking about his failed attempt to launch IDN’s in 2001 and the "re-launch" in 2008.

Who is trying to convince? Yoav, keep the 500k that you would be spending on fees and credit ALL the people that registered your fake IDN’s over the years.

Someone in the crowd should have asked were are they ranked on Google? Oops! They are not.

http://www.livestream.com/igfchannel...a-ff82da99dab6 Some good info. Looks like ICANN just told anyone go study English before realizing it's a bad answer one year after.
