ICANN Board Approves 2013 Registry Agreement

3 July 2013

ICANN's New generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) program has reached another milestone with passage of the 2013 Registry Agreement [PDF, 809 KB] (RA).

The new baseline agreement was approved by the New gTLD Program Committee of the ICANN Board of Directors.

"New gTLDs are now on the home stretch," said Chris Disspain, a member of ICANN's New gTLD Program Committee. "This new Registry Agreement means we've cleared one of the last hurdles for those gTLD applicants who are approved and eagerly nearing that point where their names will go online."

Among the key points in the new Registry Agreement:

Includes a Trademark Clearinghouse that will serve as a one-stop shop where trademark holders can protect their rights.

Provides for a process for a rapid, efficient way to take down infringing domain names.

Provides a procedure where trademark rights holders can assert claims directly against a registry operator for domain name abuse if that operator has played an active role in the abuse.

Requires registry operators to have a single point of contact responsible for handling abuse complaints.

"We're getting to the point now where new gTLD applicants can see the finish line," said Akram Atallah, President of the ICANN's Generic Domains Division. "Much like the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement approved by the Board last week, this new Registry Agreement is the culmination of input from a wide range of stakeholders and marks a dramatic improvement over the previous baseline agreement."

The New gTLD Registry Agreement is intended to enhance the security and stability of the Domain Name System while bolstering competition in domain name industry. The security provisions include:

A requirement that registry operators implement Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), reducing so-called "man-in-the-middle" attacks and spoofed DNS records.

A requirement of enhanced WHOIS service at the registry level with a common interface, and more rapid search capabilities, facilitating efficient resolution of malicious activities.

"This isn't just a gradual step forward," said Atallah. "This is a major move that translates to far greater security protections."
So, nothing else standing in the way of Registries signing contracts with ICANN?

Legal rights objections for .ком and .орг among others http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/lro/cases/


Wipo panels should release their decisions in a few days :
Quote:
On receipt of an objection or response, the WIPO Center will conduct an administrative compliance review and process the case filing fee. Any administrative deficiencies must be corrected within five (5) days of notification by the Center. Within 30 days of the close of the objection window, ICANN will publish a "Dispute Announcement" listing all administratively compliant objections. The WIPO Center will then notify applicants of any objections; applicants will then have 30 days to file a response. Within 30 days of receiving a response, the WIPO Center will appoint the expert panel. Normally the panel will render its determination within 45 days of appointment.
Objections received on March 13th + 30 days to file response + 30 days to appoint panel + 45 days to render a determination =~ July 1st

I don't think the clock started ticking on March 13th, which was the deadline to receive objections. There was an announcement on April 12th, Dispute Announcement: Objection Filings Published, which seems to suggest that the clock didn't start ticking until that day. Also, I saw a posting on one of the domain-news blogs (I can't find it now) that suggested that the WIPO panel could ask the objector for more information after receiving the response, adding another 30 days to the process.

It would be nice if the WIPO status page, http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/lro/cases/, gave more precise status information than "pending". At any rate, none of the cases have been determined so far, other than a few that were terminated early on.

Re: Last Contractual Hurdle Cleared in the Introduction of New Domain Names

Well, I may have been overly pessimistic about the timing. Three cases have already been decided (none of them involving IDNs). From DomainIncite: first-three-new-gtld-objections-thrown-out.
