Name Collision Occurrence Management Framework
Whereas, on 7 October 2013 the NGPC directed the President, Global Domains Division to implement the proposal to manage the occurrence of collisions between new gTLDs and existing private uses of the same strings as presented in the "New gTLD Collision Occurrence Management Plan" (the "Collision Occurrence Management Plan"), and in doing so to take into account further advice that may be offered by Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) and other experts and stakeholders.
Whereas, the Collision Occurrence Management Plan called for a follow-up study that would inform the development of a Name Collision Occurrence Management Framework.
Whereas, on 26 February 2014, ICANN published the follow-up study called for in the NGPC's 7 October 2013 resolution, which was prepared by JAS Global Advisors (JAS) and entitled "Mitigating the Risk of DNS Namespace Collisions: A Study on Namespace Collisions in the Global Internet DNS Namespace and a Framework for Risk Mitigation, Phase One Report" [https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/name-collision-mitigation-26feb14-en.pdf ] (the "JAS Study and Name Collision Framework"). The JAS Study and Name Collision Framework, which was posted for public comment, provided a set of recommendations that describe a comprehensive framework to reduce current and future DNS namespace collisions, alert operators of potential DNS namespace related issues, and provide emergency response capabilities in the event that critical (e.g., life safety) systems are adversely impacted. The JAS Study and Name Collision Framework was revised [https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/name-collision-mitigation-study-06jun14-en.pdf ] in response to public comments.
Whereas, on 6 June 2014, the ICANN Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) published SAC 066 [https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-066-en.pdf ]: SSAC Comment Concerning JAS Phase One Report on Mitigating the Risk of DNS Namespace Collisions, in which it offered advice and recommendations to the Board on the framework presented in the JAS Study and Name Collision Framework.
Whereas, the proposed name collision framework being presented to the NGPC for consideration takes into account advice offered by SSAC in SAC066, and the advice of other experts and stakeholders, including the recommendations from JAS, public comments, and community discussions at ICANN meetings.
Whereas, the NGPC acknowledges comments from the community concerning the need to ensure that all names, which registries blocked under their Alternate Path to Delegation Report, be subject to the rights protection mechanisms established by the New gTLD Program.
Whereas, the ICANN Board previously adopted the NGPC's recommendation to direct the ICANN President and CEO to develop a long-term plan to management name collision at the root.
Whereas, the NGPC is undertaking this action pursuant to the authority granted to it by the Board on 10 April 2012, to exercise the ICANN Board's authority for any and all issues that may arise relating to the New gTLD Program.
Resolved (2014.07.30.NG01), the NGPC adopts the Name Collision Occurrence Management Framework <https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/name-collision-framework-30jul14-en.pdf> [see attached] to continue to manage the occurrence of collisions between new gTLDs and existing private uses of the same strings, and directs the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to take the necessary actions to implement the Name Collision Occurrence Management Framework. As part of implementation, registry operators will be provided with a Name Collision Occurrence Assessment (see Registry Agreement, Specification 6, Section 6), which will address, among other things, procedures to remove second level domains from the block list including measures to protect rights holders.
Resolved (2014.07.30.NG02), the NGPC directs the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to consult with the community during the next 90 days from the publication of these resolutions to address appropriate rights protection mechanisms for names included in a registry operator's Alternate Path to Delegation Report and recorded in the Trademark Clearinghouse that registry operator withheld from allocation during its Sunrise period or Claims period.
Resolved (2014.07.30.NG03), the NGPC directs the President and CEO, or his designee(s) to provide information to, and work with the GNSO to consider whether policy work on developing a long-term plan to manage gTLD name collision issues should be undertaken.
Resolved (2014.07.30.NG04), the NGPC directs the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to continue to provide briefings and share information and best practices with ccTLD managers concerning name collision issues in light of the Name Collision Occurrence Management Framework.
