Employ Media says ICANN “publicly defamed” it in breach notice.
.Jobs registry Employ Media has struck back at ICANN after the latter sent it a breach notice.
In a letter to ICANN, Employ Media Viceâ€President & General Counsel Brian Johnson wrote:
It goes without saying that all of us here at Employ Media, and indeed many in the international human resource management community, are extremely surprised and disappointed with ICANN’s complete reversal of position in this matter. We are specifically disappointed with ICANN’s decision to publicly defame Employ Media and its contractual partners, which serves no purpose except to cause irreparable harm to Employ Media and others who have built their business around ICANN and the Internet governance framework for which it is responsible.
Indeed, it did seem like a “complete reversal” and this issue will create a lot of work for ICANN’s new contractual compliance deputy.
Johnson also requested an immediate phone conference “to address the damage caused by the Notice and
to further initiate discussions relating to the issues identified therein.”
The group is invoking “Cooperative Engagement” under Section 5.1(a) of the registry agreement.
