This is the beginning, rather than the end. The addition of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) to the Internet Domain Name System (DNS) has significantly increased the number of existing TLDs available to registrants. Although there is no prospect that new gTLDs will significantly affect the dominance of <.com>, they provide an additional supply of available names for registrants. These new names will remain with the Internet for as long as domain names are relevant. In this sense, the programme has changed the DNS. The programme has also contributed significantly to changes in the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and it has led to the creation of a rather extensive framework of transnational private regulation, which is applied in a quasi-judicial system. In my view, it would be useful to develop ICANN’s many dispute-resolution policies and independent review into a more elaborate arbitration system that can fulfil the need for a quasi-judicial system, to support the fair and consistent adjudication of cases under ICANN’s transnational private regulation.

Generic Top-Level Domains

A Study of Transnational Private Regulation

Tobias Mahler

This topical book examines the regulatory framework for introducing generic Top-Level Domains on the Internet. Drawn up by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), these rules form part of a growing body of transnational private regulation, complementing national and international law. The book elucidates and discusses how ICANN has tackled a diverse set of economic and regulatory issues, including competition, consumer protection, property rights, procedural fairness, and the resolution of disputes.
