At-Large issues related to new gTLD creation

December 11 2009

Evan Leibovitch


Carried over from dagv2

Carried over from DAGv2

  • At-Large comments were made at the Summit

  • Most issues in that report were not addressed

  • Do we express concern about lack of consideration?


Untouched from dag2 to dag3

Untouched from DAG2 to DAG3

  • Price for applicants

    • Especially for community applications that aren't using the TLD mainly for revenue production

  • Punitive “refund” system for partial bids

    • Why not a graduated “pay by the stage” system?

  • The Morality and Public Order objection

    • Nobody wants it, but everyone thinks we need one

    • Can we propose an alternative (maybe together with GAC)?

    • Maybe just a “banned word” list?


Untouched from dag2 to dag31

Untouched from DAG2 to DAG3

  • Categorizations

    • Still just “community” and “non-community”

    • Lack of further splits denies fast-tracking for non-controversial applications

    • Differential pricing

    • How many are optimal?

  • Intellectual Property

    • Indiginous peoples' “Traditional Knowledge” unacknowledged


Modified in dag3 but still bad

Modified in DAG3, but still bad

  • String confusion – there is still allowance for objections based “meanings” of strings

    • Also similar “meaning” to trademarks

  • Dispute Resolution Service Providers

    • Parties should be allowed to choose their own mediator

  • Independent Objector

    • Fixed budget and an obligation to bear same costs as any other objector

    • Will this limit how effective the IO can be?


Not yet dealt with

Not yet dealt with

  • Unregistered trademarks

    • We didn't have a position before on “common law” marks, but this came up in debate over the IRT

  • High Security Zone Verification

    • Is it worth anything without WHOIS accuracy?

    • They're looking for guidance on this, it seems

  • Expressions of Interest

    • Not now part of DAG, but could appear in DAG4
