Response to disclosure request mostly redacted.
The .JOBS Charter Compliance Coalition, a group of companies opposed to the expansion of who can register .jobs domain names, has gotten the cold shoulder from ICANN in a recent request.
The group made a request through ICANN’s Documentary Information Disclosure Policy (DIDP) for information on how and why the IANA database entry about the “purpose” of .jobs was changed. ICANN responded by releasing the support ticket chain including the request from Employ Media LLC, but almost all of it is redacted.
First there’s the original ticket/request from Employ Media’s Ray Fassett in May asking for the purpose to be changed from “Reserved for human resource managers” to “Reserved to serve needs of the international human resource management community.”
Then there’s a note from Nadia Sokolova, IANA Request Specialist at ICANN, to Kim Davies, Manager of Root Zone Services, asking if the update can be made.
Everything else after that is redacted until a note from Kim Davis to Fassett saying the change has been made.
In other words, basically everything the Coalition wanted to find out was absent.
I can’t imagine what information that was redacted shouldn’t actually be public, but perhaps the redaction was due to the ongoing legal battle between Employ Media and ICANN.
