You are exactly right. National law will determine whether legislation would
be required in order for the access process to work under the Blended Proposal.
Some governmental bank regulators may conclude that they lack the legislative

As others have noted, ICANN is not necessarily capable of totally addressing
the question of access if the current open access is dropped.

front line in terms of phishing. It is this sector that is positioned to

Would there be a law in each country governing the certification
process and the extent and remedies of regulation?
Assuming the answer above is yes, why would such a procedure be
restricted to banks? wouldn't it be equally applicable to any sector
that could get the country it was in to create the laws it wanted.
