OPPOSED to proposed changes on Specific Curative Rights Protections for International Governmental Organizations


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Slabaugh, Joseph
24 October 2021

Submission Summary:

There are smaller owners, like myself that would not be served well if you made UDRP worse for us.


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Garvin, Kevin
24 October 2021

Submission Summary:

Am I right in my understanding that this proposed policy change would result in legitimate domain owners losing their domain names because anyone would be able to pay a fee to have a random person make a purely personal decision on the fate of the domain without being held accountable for their actions, even if they are in violation of any rightful logic? Oh wait, that is already the case in so many ridiculous unjust UDRP proceedings. Now ...


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Kirikos, George
24 October 2021

Submission Summary:

We are opposed to the entire report. It is a product of capture, as documented by a detailed analysis of the participation levels of the new working group.

Instead, we propose an alternative "Notice of Objection" system which would be a win-win for both IGOs and for domain name registrants, as it has the ability to eliminate the mutual jurisdiction clause while still preserving the full legal rights of domain name registrants.

Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - (RySG), Registries Stakeholder Group
23 October 2021

Submission Summary:

The RySG has some concern in general regarding changes to the URS and UDRP processes. However, we understand that IGOs have cited a unique set of jurisdictional challenges impacting their ability to avail themselves of various rights protection mechanisms (RPMs) and that this work was an attempt to accommodate their specific needs and will be utilized on a very limited basis. We would support the EPDP in reaching out to the GNSO...

Submission Summary:

Domain registrants' rights to judicial review must be preserved.


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Internet Commerce Association
22 October 2021

Submission Summary:

The Initial Report raises numerous issues which concern the Internet Commerce Association. Any proposed policy solution which “affects the right and ability of registrants to file judicial proceedings” and/or which fails to “preserve registrants’ rights to judicial review” of a UDRP or URS decision is unjust and will not comply with the clear and specific mandate given by ICANN’s GNSO Council to the EPDP. It is crucial that the GNSO Counc...


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Governmental Advisory Committee
22 October 2021

Submission Summary:

The GAC appreciates the work of the EPDP convened to address the question of IGO access to a curative rights protection mechanism.  The GAC reiterates that IGOs are unique treaty-based institutions created by governments under international law, and especially noting that IGOs undertake global public service missions, that protecting their names and acronyms in the DNS is in the global public interest.  The GAC also recalls that ICAN...

Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Narayan-Denning, Aarti
22 October 2021

Submission Summary:

I am against any impediment or restraint to free speech, however cleverly disguised.

This proposal would be disruptive to free speech, and only serve to line the pockets of the legal profession. It paves the way for jurisdiction that would result in the automatic suspension of domains and tlds based on the unfounded notions of large organisations. It is simply a vanity proposal and reeks of self-indulgence. It must be summarily shelved....


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Busca, Philip
21 October 2021

Submission Summary:

My overall position on this matter is against Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Policy.

On a side note, there should be allowed more EOT time for this matter, because many people are not aware of this Policy case.

Thank you and stay safe.


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Zachery, Michael
20 October 2021

Submission Summary:

I choose to reject this report since it's nothing more than an excessive extension of IGOs' diplomatic immunity. There's no valid reason for them to have such special privileges as stated in this report. It seems that these IGOs are spending their time on unnecessary things when they should be fulfilling their god-given duties instead. No wonder things don't get done and worldly problems don't get solved. Or are they running out of money so ba...


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Rundio, Dan
19 October 2021

Submission Summary:

This is an unnecessary and harmful policy. They already have access to disputes, this is just making it easier to steal domain names with even less proof of merit than is already required.

Submission Summary:

I would like to have more time to understand and consider the implications of this report.


Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs Submission - Chang, Ted
13 October 2021

Submission Summary:

I OPPOSE, REJECT, DISAPPROVE, & OBJECT TO this Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs. This is no different than an attempt to open the flood gates of allowing people to perform reverse domain name hijacking on any & all domains without any consequences whatsoever. Domain names are essentially no different than luxury goods. Domain names have never been the determining factor of whether an IGO or ...
