LOS ANGELES – 5 January 2018 – The deadline to submit comments on the new sections [PDF, 1.12 MB] of the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice (CCT) Review Team draft report of recommendations has been extended until Monday 15 January 23:59 UTC.

Comment on the new sections.

The CCT Review Team published its draft report and recommendations for public comment in March 2017. The new sections seek to reflect results from the "Statistical Analysis of DNS Abuse in gTLDs" Report (see here for more information), and address costs of the New gTLD Program for trademark holders, based on the results from a survey conducted by the International Trademark Association (INTA) (see here [PDF, 1.4 MB] for more information). In addition, the CCT Review Team requests feedback on updates made to its parking and consumer choice related sections.

The CCT Review Team aims to publish its final report in Q1 2018.
