Transition from U.S. Government has Four Work Tracks by Fadi Chehad?

Nine weeks have passed since the U.S. government announced its intention to transition stewardship of the IANA functions to the global community. This landmark announcement requires a measured, thoughtful approach for how we ? the Internet community ? will map a route to a successful transition. Together, we must pool our efforts with a goal of producing an acceptable and timely proposal for a smooth transition.

Internet Governance Futures - Impact of Brazil Conference and Looking Forward: Remarks by Ambassador Daniel A. Sepulveda, Deputy Assistant Secretary and U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy, Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs, Telecommunications and Media Forum LatAm, International Institute of Communications

We think that NETmundial, the global multistakeholder meeting on the future of Internet governance, held in Sao Paulo last month, took us a long way in that direction. It recognized that the Internet is a global resource which should be managed in the public interest and committed all but a few of its global participants committed to a future for Internet governance rooted in common principles and endorsed the multistakeholder process for addressing future challenges.

Panel on Global Internet Cooperation and Governance Mechanisms Builds on NETmundial Momentum by Nora Abusitta

Yesterday, the Panel on Global Internet Cooperation and Governance Mechanisms released the culmination of its work in a high level report that can be viewed here. I was privileged to lead the ICANN team working with the panelists at an exciting time in the evolution of Internet governance discussions. As part of this incredible journey, I attended the NETmundial multistakeholder meeting in Brazil and witnessed the creation of the historic Multistakeholder Statement of S?o Paulo: a document this Panel helped shape and subsequently built upon.

Feedback Encouraged on ICANN?s Draft Five-Year Strategic Plan (FY 2016 ? 2020) by Steve Crocker

Since its inception in 1998, the ICANN community has never faced a greater rate or scope of change than it faces today ? or will continue to face in the coming five years. This makes coalescing our global community around a new overarching vision and long-term strategic plan for ICANN critical. The Board has asked the public for feedback on a Draft Five-Year Strategic Plan (FY 2016 ? 2020) and I encourage you to share your input. We have extended the public comment period through 27 June 2014.

Update on Registry Agreement Specification 13 by Cyrus Namazi, Vice President, Domain Name Services, ICANN Global Domains Division

As reported earlier, Specification 13 to the Registry Agreement was approved by the NGPC on 26 March 2014. Specification 13 provides limited accommodations to registry operators of TLDs that qualify as ?.Brand TLDs? and reflects months of discussions on many key issues raised by the community during the public comment forum and other community outreach.

Women in online businesses and their ANZIA potential by Jo Lim, auDA COPO on 21 May 2014

Last year, market research commissioned by auDA and AusRegistry showed that women are under-represented in domain name ownership ? just 16% of female respondents owned a domain name, compared with 32% of male respondents. It was suggested that one reason for this disparity may be the higher proportion of male small business owners, which is a key driver of domain name sales.

Investing in the present

At the time of writing, there have been some 600,000 registrations across new TLDs, and some interesting launch strategies, and business models. For our part, at Famous Four Media, we embraced ?the channel?; that is to say we believe in the existing domain name system, and don?t think registries should be innovating with new business models or whacky pricing schemes at the moment, rather for now we believe that innovation should remain the province of the registrant. I draw your attention to two other registry operators whose business model appears similar to Famous Four Media?s in this respect, but of course remain very different in other ways: .CLUB & Donuts.

Dotafrica Dispute Causes More Delays

The launch of the .africa TLD by the ZACR has been delayed due to the ongoing Independent Review Process between ICANN and DotConnectAfrica (DCA), Neil Dundas, Chief Operating Officer of the South Africa-based ZA Central Registry (ZACR) said.

Universal Acceptance of All TLDs Now!

Universal acceptance of TLDs hasn?t really meant much to most Internet users up until now. As long as .COM was basically the default TLD, there wasn?t much of an issue.

Some of these new TLDs are doing quite well

There are a lot of new TLDs I?d like to own as a business right now. Many of them. Consider .guru, which has about 57,000 domains registered and is growing by 100-200 names a day.

New TLDs and a lack of price caps

One issue many people think may be a ticking time bomb with consumers and new TLDs is a lack of price controls. I was reminded of this today by some comments on another post.

New gTLD Marketing is What Interests Me Most

I think I?ve made it pretty clear that for better or worse, I am primarily on the sidelines when it comes to the new gTLD domain names. I would rather pay more for good names in a year or two (or longer) than buy new domain names now because I can determine whether they have enough investment value for my company at a later date. At this point, I have no idea whether it will be feasible for a domain investor to make money from the new domain names, so I am not buying many.

U.S. Indicts Five Chinese Army Officers for Alleged Cyberespionage Operations

The United States government on Monday made an unprecedented move in its efforts to combat cyberespionage operations against American companies, efforts that until now had mainly consisted of strongly worded statements and diplomacy. The Department of Justice indicted five officers of the Chinese People?s Liberation Army for allegedly hacking into networks run by companies such as U.S. Steel, Westinghouse and Alcoa and stealing proprietary information that allegedly then was passed on to Chinese-owned companies.

That was quite a show the government put on Monday.
