Former ICA counsel left to join Verisign.
Attorney and policy expert Phil Corwin is remaining in the domain name industry.
Last week Phil Corwin announced he was leaving the Internet Commerce Association. Today, we know why he left — he has joined Verisign as Policy Counsel.
In a short email, Corwin said that he has resigned from ICANN’s Business Constituency and from his seat representing it on the GNSO Council because he is now part of a contracted party.
He will remain co-chair of working groups on Curative Rights Protections for International Intergovernmental Organizations, and on Rights Protection Measures in all gTLDs.
