4 August 2009 | In an attempt to contribute to community discussion regarding domain name front running, ICANN commissioned a study to assess the occurrence of domain name front running.
3 August 2009 | Implementation of the GNSO Improvements process requires the amendment of a substantial number of the ICANN Bylaws to reflect new GNSO structures, processes and mechanisms. A packaged set of draft Bylaws and additional Staff recommendations (Version 2) was posted for Public review and comment so that the ICANN Board can move forward with Bylaw amendments as soon as practicable.
Our bylaws are very important to us. They capture our mission of security, stability and accessibility, and compel the organization to be open and transparent. Learn more at www.ICANN.org.
