Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, Inc. Key Developments

ICANN Partners with China Academy of Telecommunication Research

ICANN and the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) have signed a MoU to strengthen cooperation on engagement efforts in China. Under the agreement, ICANN and CATR will work together to improve communication with Chinese communities, align academic and public research in IP address and domain name areas, and exchange opinions on internet governance. CATR will also help promote participation from the Chinese community in ICANN activities such as ICANN public meetings.

National Association of Boards of Pharmacy to Enter Contract Negotiations with Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers

National Association of Boards of Pharmacy(R) (NABP(R)) has been deemed eligible to enter contract negotiations with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to own and operate the .pharmacy domain suffix. The new .pharmacy generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) will be available only to legitimate online pharmacies and related entities located in the United States or other countries. Further, the Registry Agreement between the Association and ICANN will include a number of safeguards intended to protect consumers and the public health. Executing the agreement with ICANN will be a significant step in bringing the Association's vision for the .pharmacy gTLD from concept to Internet. The .pharmacy proposal, developed in partnership with a global coalition of stakeholders, addresses a shared concern about illegal online drug sellers distributing products that endanger patient health worldwide. Thus, in its application to ICANN, NABP stated the importance of ensuring that only legitimate website operators that adhere to pharmacy laws in the jurisdictions in which they are based and to which they sell medicine will be able to register domain names in .pharmacy. NABP's proposed criteria for .pharmacy registrants are consistent with safeguards recently defined by the ICANN Government Advisory Committee (GAC) and now required of all new gTLDs within highly regulated industries. The GAC safeguards address consumer protection, security, and privacy concerns and will be addressed in the Registry Agreement. For example, NABP, as the registry operator, will require that registrars approved to sell .pharmacy domain names notify registrants, such as Internet pharmacies, that they must comply with all applicable laws, and provide proof that they are licensed to operate a pharmacy and to practice pharmacy.

Top Level Domain Holdings Signs Contracts with Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers

The directors of Top Level Domain Holdings announced that the company has signed contracts with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers for five new top-level domains (gTLDs) wholly-owned by the company: .horse, .cooking, .casa, .fishing, and .budapest. In addition, Minds + Machines GmbH, the company's 80% owned subsidiary, has signed the contract with Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers for .nrw. All six applications will now progress to pre-delegation testing, the final step before delegation into the Internet's root zone.
