Letter from Paul Twomey to Cary Karp
Mr. Cary Karp
Los Angeles, January 20, 2004
Dear Mr. Karp,
On behalf of ICANN, I am pleased to authorize MuseDoma to deploy Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) on the basis of its commitment to adhere to the "Guidelines for the Implementation of Internationalized Domain Names, Version 1.0". In working to achieve consensus on these Guidelines with other key IDN registries, MuseDoma has demonstrated its leadership in helping to achieve practical solutions to the many technical and operational challenges that IDN deployment poses.
Accordingly, on behalf of ICANN and acting under ICANN Board resolution 03.48, MuseDoma is hereby granted written approval for the deployment of IDNs in compliance with the provisions of the "Guidelines for the Implementation of Internationalized Domain Names, Version 1.0", including by using tagged domain names beginning with "xn--" as specified in Attachment 11 of the Sponsorship Agreement between MuseDoma and ICANN.
ICANN looks forward to supporting the efforts of MuseDoma and others to promote the responsible deployment of IDNs based on the principles stated in the Guidelines.
CEO and President
