Thanks for the update, I must inform the weatherman that Hell has officially
frozen over, as I struggle to recall the last time Kurt Pritz or any ICANN
senior staff have agreed with me:
Question 3: Will ICANN commit to create a block list of globally recognized
Answer: As Michael Palage discussed at the hearing, more than a decade
ago, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) investigated
the development of a global "register" for well-‐known marks, but was
unable to identify objective, globally acceptable criteria.
Look forward to seeing everyone in Singapore, and for the new gTLD party.
Hopefully we can avoid the hangover that Steve DelBianco warned against.
