Re: [ga] Time to regulate the Re-Sellers
Objection your both Honors. You are discussing in XXth words using plain
ICANNese language. We are XXIth as you may know. :-)
What is the difference? "Yes the ICANN is to regulate. No the ICANN is not"
has IMHO no meaning.
We are not in a regulated environment. We are in a distributed
international system and whatever someone does it has an impact. Willing or
not what the ICANN does has an impact. On every thing. Like me having open
a public nationwide 7000 TLD service today supporting 3.000.000 domain
names may have an impact - on my purse first since everythnig is still
Now, what they do not understand is that we are not in a centralized
federal legal system. Not even in a lose confederative one. We are at high
sea in international waters. This does not means there is no law and no way
to enforce them, but that the ways are different. There are Internet rules
as there are universal navigation rules: BTW they are named the same
n[aval]etiquette . There are good practices. There is good example. You
cannot force, but you catalyze and find ways to oblige. Most of all: you
must make bad things unnecessary or unrewarding. (Black Ivory trade stopped
when it did not pay anymore because of the progress on the puchasing shore).
Why such a spamming. Because a reseller wants to survive its Registrar in
selling DNs. Why to sell DNs, why Registrars, why Registrars in a weak
The problem is that ICANN shows wrong signals and catalyzes badly. The
contract policy is so opposed to general simple rules that no one wants to
sign them. Why do you want spammers to respect contracts ccTLDs does not
wantto sign and no one can enforce. When ICANN starts creating colliders,
why do you want TLD squatters to care? Why do you want people to care about
digital divide when .org is first a big money issue.
Great seamen in History had no more to fight: ennemies surrendered when
seeing their flag. There is a long long way before ICANN is acknowledged
that kind of respect.
For example fostering competition was not to create a complex competition
among unnecessary Registrars and hungry resellers, but to permit enough
TLDs so there would have been quality competition between Registries, and
consultants could have installed and developed the sites of their
customers. Who cares about quality? Where are the consumer organizations
qualifying good Registrars and poor ones - anyway they are blocked by NSI.
