Internet Commerce Association updates members on some of the policy work it is doing.
Last week the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) held a member call to provide an update on what the organization is doing to advocate for domain name investors.
Here are just some of the things ICA is working on:
- UDRP and UDRP reform
- Whois access accreditation and accessibility in the wake of GDPR
- Verisign’s request to auction off O.com and how it might set precedent
- U.S. NTIA activities as they relate to domain names, such as the Cooperative Agreement with Verisign
ICA is also representing domain name investors at policy conferences including all of the ICANN meetings.
In addition to policy activities, the group discussed its budget. It’s a lean operation with a very low annual budget. With more domain investor support, the organization could commit more resources to fight on behalf of domain name investors.
You can see membership options here. They include everything from a $50-a-month individual option to corporate levels. And if you’d prefer to pay for a larger sponsorship in cryptocurrency, I bet they’ll accommodate you.
