Full-Day of Panels - 8:45 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.


It is difficult to avoid Internet domain names. Everyone who engages in commerce, social life, gaming, political commentary, or education is likely to deal regularly with the Internet and the domain name system. Many would assume that the system for allocating domain names to businesses, educational institutions, politicians, and private individuals is some form of government enterprise coordinated by either the U.S. government, or a consortium of international governments.

In fact, the body responsible for administering and maintaining the domain name system is a private entity known as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers – ICANN. ICANN has the difficult task of dealing with the technological structures underlying the domain name system, but also attempting to develop policies to accommodate the various competing needs of entities utilizing the Internet. This is an unenviable task that implicates matters including the protection of intellectual property rights in a global online world, the promotion of free speech, access to information, privacy, and many other issues.

This symposium draws together a group of speakers who have been involved with ICANN and who have commented on ICANN’s various processes over the last decade or so. They will address legal, policy, commercial, practical, and technological issues that have arisen, and continue to arise, as the domain name system develops.
