High Interest Topics session: Mitigation of Abuse in gTLDs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This high interest topic session is proposed by the GAC Public Safety Working Group (PSWG).
Subsequent to the Affirmation of Commitments and GAC Safeguard Advice for New gTLDs (Beijing Communiqué, 11 April 2013), a number of measures to mitigate abuse of the DNS have been incorporated into ICANN’s New gTLD Program. Additionally, a range of abuse-related activities at ICANN are still in development phase.
While the effectiveness of such measures is subject to ongoing reviews in connection with the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice (CCT) Review, the PSWG notes the prevalence of threats (as demonstrated by reports of abuse by specialized industry actors ) which raise important public safety issues.
In order to ensure an interactive and productive session on this topic, the PSWG is inviting presentations and discussion of existing best practices across the industry, as well as ICANN’s efforts in enforcing relevant provisions incorporated into both the Registry Agreement (RA) and the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA).
Goals and expected outcomes:
• Update ICANN Community and discuss current industry practices in the mitigation of abuse of the DNS
• Provide an opportunity for the ICANN Community and its SO/ACs to present their views and raise their concerns for consideration in the ongoing reviews of the effectiveness of current safeguards, as well as ongoing abuse-related activities at ICANN.
