    ICANN Meetings Workshop on Domain Marketplace at Morocco ICANN Meeting
    posted by michael on Wednesday June 21 2006, @03:28PM

    Jothan Frakes writes "I have been asked and invited by ICANN to moderate a workshop session on the domain marketplace during a two and a half to three hour workshop at the meetings in Marrakech.

    There are many facets of the industry that could be considered marketplace, but I’ll likely have to bring an air horn and a stopwatch to keep folks on pace to cover the materials given our session length. Actually, an air horn is not TSA approved, so perhaps a whistle instead. Anyway…

    This workshop could have had many, many, many topics, yet the session realistically has 2.5 to 3 hours to cover a lot of ground, so there was a necessity to try to get as much use out of that time as possible. This made it necessary to really focus on three key areas:

    1 Domain Monetization Understanding what is going on in domain monitization is an important place to start this dialog. The beginning of any reasonable dialog begins with some comprehensive understanding of the whole picture.

    2 Add Grace ‘Tasting’ A recent thread of comment about Ram Mohan’s article on CircleID regarding the Dotster lawsuit explains volumes as to it being a timely topic to focus on. The add-grace period activity that is occuring will be discussed.

    3 Expiring Names Many registrars are altering their Registration Agreements to allow them to retain ownership of the domain as part of seeking some form of remedy in the event of non-payment by the registrant. Those domains are subsequently auctioned in some manner by the registrar.

    It is a workshop, designed to help elevate awareness of the marketplace to all who attend, and there is a good diversity in the panels, so there will be great dialog happening.

    I encourage people to comment in the forum that ICANN has set up prior to 6/27 (and prior to 6/24 is better as it allows me more time to effectively incorporate more comment into the introduction) so that there is a good representation of public opinion brought in to the meeting.

    Regarding the workshop, if there are readers who wish to comment, it would work best if comments would flow through ICANN’s comment forum: post your comments by email to dn-market-comments at icann.org (remove spaces and replace the at with @). Comment archives are at Read Comments here."
