Summary of Submission
The DNS Abuse Institute (DNSAI) appreciates the chance to comment on DNS Abuse contractual changes and commends ICANN and parties for their swift action. DNSAI fully supports the amendments, particularly the requirement to mitigate malicious domain registrations. They value the flexible approach to abuse mitigation and the ability for ICANN to enforce actions against non-compliant parties. DNSAI welcomes the use of web-form based reporting and notes the definition of DNS Abuse aligns with widely accepted standards. They remain committed to further collaboration in reducing DNS Abuse and see these amendments as a vital step toward a safer global Internet.
