IANA Functions Usage Analysis by Alain Durand, Principal Technologist

When I joined ICANN a few months ago and learned that part of my role would be supporting the IANA Stewardship Transition process, I wanted to learn more about how those functions are actually operated and how much the community uses them. My background has been in the IETF for 20+ years where I chaired several working groups and authored a number of RFC?s, so I have always known the IANA registries as a user of the functions, however I was not very intimate with its internal operation.

Fadi Chehad? Announces His Departure ? What?s Next for Businesses at ICANN? by Kiran Malancharuvil

Last week, the CEO of ICANN, Fadi Chehad?, announced his intention to leave his position in March 2016, after almost four years as head of the organization. He plans to take a position in private industry, outside of the domain name space. Although the impact to the business community is unclear at this point, Chehad??s departure throws a spotlight on how important ICANN leadership can be in ensuring that business and brand interests maintain their voice in the Internet governance sphere.

The new internet layer and what it means for trademark counsel

While trademark practitioners are still coming to grips with the implications of the new gTLD expansion, Frogans technology is set to add a layer to the Internet in the form of Frogans sites. The introduction of Frogans does not represent a tidal wave of online change in the same way that new gTLDs have, but it is worth reporting on, particularly with a priority registration window currently open for trademark owners.

Advantages of Crowdinvesting in Financing New gTLDs by Alex Tajirian

The second-round new gTLD applicants have a tool they don't even know about: "crowdinvesting." That's when a venture sidesteps banks and venture capitalists and instead raises money by selling shares directly to the public. Usually this is done over the Internet, and often enough the investors can hope for a financial return that's far better than what banks and stocks offer.

Phishing in the New gTLDs by Greg Aaron

The new Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) Global Phishing Survey has just been released. Written by myself and Rod Rasmussen of IID, the report is the "who, what, where, when, and why" look at phishing, examining the second half of 2014.

If You're Not On IPv6, It Could Cost You A Fortune

We?ve long known that the pool of IPv4 addresses was near exhaustion ? and as Tim Chown explains, that now means you?ll soon pay dearly if you?re not ready to shift to IPv6.

We?ve been hearing about the impending depletion of IPv4 addresses for years, but that day is finally upon us -- the free supply of IPv4 numbers in North America will be completely gone within a month or two.

Thriving market for dwindling IP addresses is a good commercial reason to finally adopt IPv6

The Internet Protocol (IP) has been phenomenally successful. From an experiment in the 1970s, it has evolved to an internet spanning the globe, connecting billions of users. IP underpins the enormous success that is the World Wide Web ? and its ubiquity has led to the convergence a wide range of technologies upon it, including digital phone calls made using Voice-over-IP (VoIP).

How Will Your Registration Data Be Managed in the Future? by Scott Hollenbeck

Benjamin Franklin once said, "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." As we consider how Internet domain and address registration data is managed and accessed in a post-WHOIS era, and given the long history of failure in addressing the shortcomings of WHOIS, it is extremely important to start preparing now for the eventual replacement of WHOIS. This is the fundamental purpose of the next Registration Operations Workshop (ROW) that is scheduled for Sunday, July 19, 2015, in Prague, Czech Republic.

In 5 years, 80 percent of the whole Internet will be online video

Video is eating the Web. Already, we know that Netflix accounts for one-third of Internet traffic at peak hours. Toss in YouTube, and that figure rises to roughly half of all bandwidth consumed. But even that's small potatoes compared with what's coming. In five years, 80 percent of the entire world's Internet consumption will be dominated by video. That number will be even higher in the United States, approaching 85 percent.
