ICANN 50 2014

ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe to enable attendees from around the world to participate in person. One meeting each year is also the organization’s annual general meeting, during which new Board members take their seats. ICANN meetings are free and officially run five days (Monday to Friday). There are also a few pre-meeting workshops and working sessions when the volunteer members of our supporting organizations and advisory committees initiate their work.

ICANN meetings offer the best opportunity for face-to-face discussions and airing of opinions among knowledgeable people dedicated to the continued stable and secure operation of the Internet.

ICANN meetings offer a variety of sessions such as workshops, open forums, and working meetings on the development and implementation of Internet policies.

Remote participation is possible while the meetings are going on. We offer several tools such as streaming live audio and video, chatrooms, and online question boxes.

Detailed logistics and information about each meeting venue, registration, and remote participation can be found at the dedicated website created for each meeting.

ICANN’s Fellowship program supports attendance at ICANN meetings by selected individuals from stakeholder groups around the world.

What topics are discussed?

A broad range of Internet-related topics are discussed at each meeting. The agenda is ever changing and as dynamic as the Internet itself, but typically they cover contractual issues with the retail and wholesale arms of the Domain Name System, ways to respond to illegal or abusive use of the Internet’s naming systems, internal restructuring, and new initiatives for increasing competition on the Internet.

xxx-TLD nun weltweit für jedermann erhältlich

Seit Dienstag, den 6. Dezember ist die Registrierung von .xxx Domains offiziell für alle eröffnet. Zuvor durften nur Firmen aus der Sexindustrie ihre Domainechte gelten lassen.

In Deutschland gibt es einige Registrare, die nun .xxx-Domains anbieten: United Domains, InternetX (beide United Internet Gruppe), Key-Systems, … um nur die größten Anbieter zu nennen.

Ich möchte hier keine neue Debatte zum Thema ICANN und TLD-Politik anfangen – aber ganz ehrlich, ich halte nichts davon!
