NCUC at RIGHTSCON BRUSSELS 2017

10:30am – 11:45am Content Regulation and Private Ordering at Internet Governance Institutions
Thursday Mar 30 – Innovation (1st Floor)

Description

Session Organizer: Non-Commercial Users Constituency at ICANN

ICANN implements policies through contractual agreements and develops policies via a multistakeholder process rooted in nonstate actors. Nevertheless, ICANN’s control of the root of the domain name system creates a centralised “choke point” where control over web site content and Internet expression can be exerted by regulating domain name registries and registrars (e.g., by taking down domains or withdrawing licenses to register names). Most stakeholders believe that ICANN’s authority to coordinate and make policy for the DNS should not be leveraged to make ICANN a content regulator on the Internet.
