Response to a United Nations Letter on the IGO Working Group Final Report

Kamila SekiewiczBlog, GNSO

The ICA participated in responding to the United Nations, who had written a letter to the ICANN Board complaining about the IGO Working Group Final Report. The ICA was extensively involved in this Working Group and took issue with the UN’s complaints about the outcome. This Working Group spent four years examining the UDRP and how IGO’s and INGO’s could fairly access it. The response to the UN letter, submitted on August 16th, illustrates that the Final Report received support from a variety of stakeholders and that no new special dispute resolution system was required for IGOs and INGOs.
