NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

Just hours before ICANN’s Costa Rica meeting kicks off, the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration has cast uncertainty over the new gTLD program by throwing another of its now-traditional last-minute bombs.

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

So basically, ICANN got too greedy and because these f@ckers lumped IDN with new gTLDs we could be delayed indefinitely if GAC doesn't approve each extension?

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

The ICANN Costa Rica meeting has begun; at this moment someone from ICANN is speaking to the GAC about the new gTLD program. The topic of greatest interest to IDNers is "batching": if there are more than 500 applications for new gTLDs, these applications will be processed in batches.

One of the criteria for determining which applications go into which batch is "geographic diversity". My guess is that unfortunately, all .com-in-IDN applications from Verisign will be counted as applications from North America, which is probably the most crowded geographic region.

But what's another delay? We're used to them by now.

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

Interesting. Could be enough to force ICANN to split IDN variant newGTLD's away from the newGTLD process and fast-track them, using the power of GAC to get it done.

We need to flood the Costa Rica discussions with comments for the same.

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

Not sure it really means anything. It is simply inappropriate use of power which is likely to take the US Government in a direction it really does not want to go.

IANA contract does not infer any decision making power. ICANN propses new TLDs. The Commerce Department rubber stamps them, and then the administer of the IANA constract sticks them in the Root as they are contract bound to do. If somebody else is sticking them into the Root under the terms of their contract, it won't change things one jot.

All this really shows is that the US Government should have no direct controlling influence on the Internet with is playing right in hands of the ITU.

Does it materially affect us? Not as far as I can see.

The politics are tricky. This could be interpreted as GAC and ICANN doing a special favor for Verisign.

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

Another question of interest to IDNers: the Trademark Clearinghouse, which will be used (as I understand it) when second-level domains are registered under the new gTLDs. It will be interesting to see how this applies to .com-in-IDN. It will also be interesting to see whether companies whose trademarks are in non-Latin scripts will hear about the Trademark Clearinghouse, and submit their trademarks by the deadline.

I think I'm right, at least in the literal sense. From the Trademark Clearinghouse section of the Applicant Guidebook:

Quote:
6. MANDATORY RIGHTS PROTECTION MECHANISMS
All new gTLD registries will be required to use the Trademark Clearinghouse to support its pre- launch or initial launch period rights protection mechanisms (RPMs). These RPMs, at a minimum, must consist of a Trademark Claims service and a Sunrise process.
It's quite possible, though, that while I'm correct about the details, I'm wrong about the big picture. If so, please elaborate.

P.S. IDNers interested in the Sunrise process might want to take a look at Section 6 of the Trademark Clearinghouse document. It has changed quite a bit from some of the previous drafts.

Re: NTIA throws a bomb, cancels IANA contract RFP

Sorry, you are obviously correct, but it has no impact on existing registrations.

Brand new registries will have minimal impact.
