ICANN sets its sights on privacy and proxy providers
12 Juin 2015World Trademark Review
The Privacy & Proxy Services Accreditation Issues Working Group (PPSAI), a working group formed by ICANN advisory body the Generic Names Supporting Organisation (GNSO), has released a 98-page report entitled “Initial Report on Privacy & Proxy Services Accreditation Issues Policy Development Process”. The working group aims to create a framework for regulating these privacy and proxy services, including spelling out how, and under which circumstances, underlying registrant details should be released. The report is underpinned by the notion that privacy and proxy services should be accredited by ICANN in the same way as domain name registrars currently are.
