This is an edited version of comments submitted to ICANN on the Government Advisory Committee (GAC) Beijing Communiqué of 11 April 2013.

The GAC Communiqué recommends that ICANN implement a range of regulations (which the GAC calls "safeguards") for all new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) covering areas ranging from malware to piracy to trademark and copyright...

Author's Foreword

Although this article was first published just a few days ago, on May 8th, there have been several important intervening developments.

First, on May 10th ICANN released a News Alert on "NGPC Progress on GAC Advice" that provides a timetable for how the New gTLD program Committee will deal with the GAC Communique.iii Of...

It's safe to say that with just a week to go before ICANN intended to sign the first contract for a new gTLD, the last thing anyone wanted was a 12-page document from the world's governments with 16 new "safeguards", six of which it wants to see applied to every new extension.

But what the industry shouldn't overlook, especially in the face of the expected critical responses this...

Earlier this April, the largest ICANN meeting ever — more than 2,500 attendees — kicked off in Beijing. Given the imminent addition of hundreds of "dot Brands" to the Internet, the topic of new gTLDs was at the top of the discussion list for all attendees. So far, well over 100 new gTLD applications have passed the...

1. Prediction: A Lesson in Story Telling.

Many TLD applicants are likely to respond to the GAC Advice in a manner that is like story telling: Based on a mixture of fiction garnished with some facts from their applications, applicants will write savvy responses with only one aim — to calm down the GAC's concerns and survive the GAC Advice storm. The "duck...

I don't have strong religion on plural TLDs.

For that matter, I don't have strong feelings for or against closed generics either, an other new gTLD issue that has recently been discussed even though it is not mentioned in the rules new gTLD applicants had to rely on.

What I do care about is predictability of process.

Yet, as Beijing showed, the ICANN community...

When names are borrowed from an Atlas, things happen.

Mandarin is a tricky language, but ICANN may want to learn the expression chóngfù before leaving the Beijing meeting. Chóngfù means "do-over" and that's what ICANN needs to forestall an entirely preventable disaster in the delegation of new top-level domains (TLDs).

The issue of "string similarity" seems straightforward. Nobody inside ICANN or out there in the real world wants...

ICANN's Nominating Committee (NomCom) is both a strange animal and a precious resource. Having a committee charged with first recruiting, then selecting suitable candidates to hold key positions within ICANN is something that is often little, or even mis, understood. Within the ICANN community itself.

By the very nature of its recruitment role, the NomCom has to remain secretive...

As part of the new domain initiative launched by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, established businesses and speculators have filed applications for a wide range of top-level domains — from .amazon to .garden.

The new gTLD program continues to throw up last-minute debates on what is acceptable as a TLDs and what is not.
