New gTLDs: Addressing Consumer and Public Interest Concerns. ICANN’s new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) Program will dramatically expand the Top Level Domain Space. The program carries benefits for end users and registrants in terms of increasing choice and competition, but it also raises a range of consumer and public interest concerns. These concerns include consumer safety and trust, multilingual access to gTLDs via internationalized scripts, rights issues related to the protection of trademarks, non-registered marks and geographic names, as well as barriers to program participation for stakeholders in the developing world. The At-Large Multi-stakeholder Policy Roundtable will highlight these issues and explore the adequacy of policies and mechanisms meant to address them.
Who Should Attend? | Members of the At-Large community and interested members of the ICANN community.
