    Image Online Design Existed Before ICANN.....
    by Gregory_Krajewski on Sunday July 15 2001, @05:09PM (#1402)
    User #2940 Info
    That would be dumb to turn off their namesevers since they have been an operational registry since 1995. ICANN took things (partially) over in 1998, a full 3 years after Dot Web through Image Online Design went live.

    You have to remember the internet did not start in 1998 when ICANN took over the resposiblities of the DNS.

    ICANN did put out new policy that effects Image Online Design since they took over, which Image Online Design is complying with, but never has ICANN told Image Online Design to turn off the switch.

    Also nothing was written in the application info to get a contract in the "A" root this last round that said, "No one that existed before us cannot apply, or be accepted".....For one they couldn't say that because the community (as whole) would need to form a consensus on this issue.

    Image Online Design then (as I see it--my opinion only) is defined by how it has operated since ICANN took things over from IANA. They adhere to the UDRP polices (new--ICANN)....They formulated a TM protection plan (new--ICANN)...WHOIS policy (new--ICANN) etc, etc.

    All these new policies were created through the working groups, then the supporting org's, then passed on to ICANN (at least this is how it is supposed to work in a perfect world). Image Online Design has participated in the working groups, attended meetings so to even suggest they are working outside of ICANN is ludicrious. They don't have to be ICANN accredited to be "in". All ICANN accreditation is that the company is allowed to sell dot com, dot net, dot org, etc. Image Online Design is a Dot Web Registry awaiting accreditation (again, this is how I see it...my opinion only, and not necessarily IOD's)
