What it is |  This is an open meeting of the Registration Abuse Policies Working Group to observe for members of the ICANN Community. There will be time reserved in the meeting for Q&A with members of the community, in order to inform the community of our ongoing work.

Why it's Important |  Registries and registrars seem to lack uniform approaches to dealing with domain name registration abuse, and questions persist as to what actions "registration abuse" refers to. The GNSO Council has launched a Registration Abuse Policies (RAP) Working Group to take a closer look at registration abuse policies.

Who should attend? | 
Anyone interested in Registration Abuse Policies and GNSO policy development.
