Escrow.com chose to join the Internet Commerce Association because their goals are aligned with ours and with many of our customers. The Internet is constantly evolving and the rules and regulations that support commerce need to be looked at very closely. ICA is doing their part to increase awareness of where the Internet commerce platform is headed in addition to protecting the rights of intellectual property owners.
I support the ICA because the ICA helps protect my livelihood. ICA has been effective in preventing damaging policies from seeing the light of day. It advocates on behalf on businesses in the domain industry at ICANN, before Congress, through the judicial system and in the media. I fully believe that our industry would be in much worse shape today were it not for the efforts of Phil Corwin and the ICA.
We joined the ICA because we firmly believe in protecting the rights of domain registrants. Whether you own one domain or thousands of domains, you deserve to have your rights as a domain owner respected and protected. We live in a world where there are a number of well-funded, well-connected stakeholder groups with a lot of influence who don’t always understand or value individual domain registrant rights.
Sedo.com joined the Internet Commerce Association as a founding member in 2006 because we felt that a thriving, active marketplace for domains could only exist if the web was operated under a transparent and predictable set of rules that respected the rights and investments made by domain registrants. Protecting the due process rights of registrants protects the foundation of an open market where domains can be bought and sold between responsible owners.
Oversee.net is proud to be a founding member of the ICA, educating constituencies about the value that the domain name industry brings to the Internet ecosystem. Responsible domain investors and service providers help protect the foundation of an open market, establishing and sharing e-commerce best practices. The benefits of supporting the ICA should not be underestimated.
