Transcript

  • 1. ICANN Contract vs. National Law With Michele Neylon
  • 2. ICANN Contract vs. National Law Michele Neylon
  • 3. Who am I? Michele Neylon - Founder / CEO Blacknight http://mneylon.tel @mneylon http://michele.me/blog IIA Net Visionary 2013 Chair RrsG, Chair Registrar Advisory Board Eurid, member EWG
  • 4. What Will I Cover? • Registrars • EU law • Registries • ICANN “law”
  • 5. I am NOT a lawyer!
  • 6. Head Hurts?
  • 7. EU Registries vs ICANN (Historical) • .tel – delayed due to whois policy • .cat – 3 years+ to get a whois policy change + comply with Spanish law
  • 8. Post Snowden World
  • 9. Getting away with murder? • EU citizens more conscious of data privacy + digital issues than before • Logically the risk of litigation has increased • Irish DPC being sued for not being tough enough on Facebook! • Registrars and registries at risk? • Is ICANN? Doubtful – they’re still safe in the US!
  • 10. EU Law vs ICANN?
  • 11. 2013 RAA • Problematic for EU based registrars • Problematic for non-EU registrar with EU registrants – Data retention – Data elements to be collected – Periods of retention
  • 12. Article 29 Working Party • 6th June letter to ICANN (http://michele.cat/ch ) • “..to avoid unnecessary duplication of work by 27 national data protection authorities in Europe.. the WP wishes to provide a single statement for all relevant registrars targeting individual domain name holders in Europe”
  • 13. Article 29 Working Party • 2013 RAA obligations NOT based on legal requirement in EU • Risk of data breach -> exposure of personal data • Opposes Private corporation (ICANN) introducing data retention -> national govt should do it (if needed)
  • 14. What about Whois? • Art 29 WP doesn’t like “open” whois • Most ccTLDs in EU “gate” data BUT ICANN forces registrars AND registries to publish EVERYTHING by default • What will “Geo” gTLDs do?
  • 15. ICANN’s response? • Waiver process for retention / collection elements of 2013 RAA (see http://michele.cat/cg ) • No change on Whois “waiver” process (yet) • Article 29 letter rejected
  • 16. Impact on Registrars / Registries • Delays • Cost (lawyers don’t work for free!) • ONLY registrars on 2013 RAA can offer new TLDs • If a registrar doesn’t have a waiver then how will their DPC react? • Is it worth the risk?
  • 17. Waiver = how long? • Advantage for registrars in countries with other registrars • 45 days? 90 days? • Timeline published by ICANN has a 30 day publication period
  • 18. Our Experience (so far) • • • • Delay Submitted request on September 17th Received basic acknowledgement same day Received a reply on October 25th with queries
  • 19. The Future? • • • • GAC involvement? Article 29 WP again? EU Commission? ICANN?
  • 20. Questions?
  • 21. Thank You …
