ICANN Publishes Registrant Rights and Responsibilities Webpage

28-Jun-2011 | Source : AG-IP News | Visits : 6644
MARINA DEL REY, CA - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has published a document that identifies available registrant rights and responsibilities under the 2009 Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), on a webpage that summarizes available registrant rights and responsibilities including those that arise under ICANN Consensus Policies and specifications, as they are incorporated in the RAA: http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities-en.htm

According to the Corporation, one of the new provisions added to the 2009 RAA requires ICANN to develop in consultation with registrars a webpage that identifies available registrant rights and responsibilities. This published document is the result of initial input from a joint working group of the GNSO and the At-Large Advisory Committee and subsequent consultations with the registrars; and provides a "plain language" summary of registrant rights and responsibilities that currently exist under the 2009 RAA.

As required by Section 3.15 of the RAA, ICANN will provide reasonable notice to all ICANN-accredited registrars that this webpage has been published after which, registrars will be required to provide a clearly displayed link to the webpage on any website a registrar may operate for domain name registration or renewal for its Registered Name Holders. While the requirement for registrars to link to the webpage will take place over a reasonable period of time, the page is currently available to all registrants at http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities-en.htm and in translated versions as shown below.
