Senate Appropriators Add IANA Transition Language as House Requests GAO Study and Civil Society Groups Oppose Shimkus Amendment by Philip S. Corwin

The Senate Appropriations Committee just reported out on June 5th its version of the Commerce-Justice-State Departments Appropriations bill for FY 15. In the course of its deliberations it added a consensus amendment on the IANA transition offered by Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE). The amendment reads:

NTIA Escapes IANA Spending Restriction in Senate Spend Bill

The Senate Appropriations Committee today approved the Fiscal Year 2015 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill. It appears that the National Telecommunications and Information Administration has been spared, for the time being, yet another congressional attempt to slow down NTIA's planned transition of its supervisory role over key DNS administration functions now performed by ICANN.

ICANN suppresses a privacy advocate?s dissent by Milton Mueller

ICANN?s Expert Working Group (EWG) on Whois and privacy, which published its final report today, has unfortunately continued a long tradition of failing to find consensus between privacy advocates and business interests. The business interests see coerced publication of domain name registration data as an invaluable aid to brand protection and law enforcement, and many brand protection services, who make their living on this data, do special interest lobbying to influence ICANN. ICANN?s staff and board consistently bias their processes in favor of those interests. So nothing has changed, in the end.

Your .com Is Waiting

Thinking of growing your business online? Look no further than .com. It is the most universally recognized, and gold standard, in domain names, which is why 97 percent of the top 100 brands, and 93 percent of Fortune Global 100 companies house their company websites on .com.

How Do You Measure Success?

As humans, there are many different ways we measure success. For some, success is all about money. For others success is about accomplishment and experience. Still others focus on health, or happiness, or family. In a balanced life, some element of all these things likely contributes to one?s measure of our own personal success.

Papering the House Backfires on New gTLD Registry But Who is Really to Blame?

In my last post Tuesday I noted that people were wondering if registrar NetworkSolutions had given away thousands of .XYZ domain names at no charge. It was obvious that something highly irregular was going on because the zone files showed that over 70% of all .XYZ registrations had been made at NetworkSolutions, an expensive registrar that has a less than 5% share of most new gTLD registrations.

?Operation Tovar? Targets ?Gameover? ZeuS Botnet, CryptoLocker Scourge

The U.S. Justice Department is expected to announce today an international law enforcement operation to seize control over the Gameover ZeuS botnet, a sprawling network of hacked Microsoft Windows computers that currently infects an estimated 500,000 to 1 million compromised systems globally. Experts say PCs infected with Gameover are being harvested for sensitive financial and personal data, and rented out to an elite cadre of hackers for use in online extortion attacks, spam and other illicit moneymaking schemes.

When It Comes to Domain Names, It?s Not Easy Being Green

This week?s National Arbitration Forum decision involves the domain names greencycler.com and thegreencycler.com. The complainant, Greencycle, Inc., holds a trademark for Greencycle and uses the domain name greencycle.com to offer mulch, soil and stone. The respondent, Gail Loos/Ingenious Marketing, uses the domain names at issue to market a counter-top composting device. The respondent applied for a trademark for Greencycler in 2010, but the USPTO rejected the application in 2011, citing likelihood of confusion with the already-registered trademark for Greencycle (held by the complainant).

WatchSeries-Online.eu Domain ?Hijacked? ? Or Was It?

The domain of a large streaming movie and TV show site was hijacked yesterday and began diverting to an imposter site.

Typically of these sites, absolutely not.

Court rules for the first time that cybersquatting constitutes act of unfair competition [subscription]

This is only the second time that a brand owner has successfully recovered a '.vn' domain name through civil litigation, and the first time that a court has based its decision on the ground that cybersquatting constitutes an act of unfair competition.

Netcraft June 2014 Web Server Survey

In the June 2014 survey we received responses from 968,882,453 sites, six million less than last month. The battle between Microsoft and Apache heated up this month, with Apache losing 13 million sites and Microsoft gaining 26 million. The resultant changes in market share have left Apache barely clinging onto the lead ? Microsoft is now only 0.15 percentage points behind. This is the closest Microsoft has ever been, giving it a good chance of taking the lead for the first time next month.

The next, the listing had disappeared completely, which saw a drop of several thousand dollars in lost revenue. ... ?We discovered we were working with a recycled domain name, which our client had unknowingly purchased. The domain name has been penalised in a previous life by Google, which meant this business had to start all over again. It's so important to start a new business with a virgin domain name.?

NANOG 61 by Geoff Huston

The recent NANOG 61 meeting was a pretty typical NANOG meeting, with a plenary stream, some interest group sessions, and an ARIN Public Policy session. The meeting attracted some 898 registered attendees, which was the biggest NANOG to date. No doubt the 70 registrations from Microsoft helped in this number, as the location for NANOG 61 was in Bellevue, Washington State, but even so the interest in NANOG continues to grow, and there was a strong European contingent, as well as some Japanese and a couple of Australians. The meeting continues to have a rich set of corridor conversations in addition to the meeting schedule. These corridor conversations are traditionally focused on peering, but these days there are a number of address brokers, content networks, vendors and niche industry service providers added to the mix. Here?s my impressions of some of the presentations at NANOG 61.
