MarkMonitor's Specific Comments to Module 5
MarkMonitor is pleased to submit the following additional comments regarding the Guidebook. Registry Compliance: Sections 4.2 and 4.3- Similar to the concerns raised under the ICANN Registrar Accreditation Agreements, ICANN should include graduated sanctions/enforcement tools to be used against registries that may not comply with ICANN requirements. This would be particularly useful if a new TLD deviated from its stated purposes and failed to comply with its acceptable use policies. Rights Protection Mechanism: Other rights protection mechanisms should be encouraged in addition to the UDRP. While the UDRP should continue to play an important role for brand holders seeking the remedy of transfer or deletion of a domain name, other rights protection mechanisms could be adopted to supplement these rights. Please refer to MarkMonitor's separately filed endorsed comments for details on the types of RPMs that would be beneficial to brand holders.
