ICA Introduces Broker Code of Conduct Badge

2

The  Internet Commerce Association (ICA) recently developed and announced a Voluntary ICA Broker Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct is a voluntary set of guidelines created with the input of ICA members to help establish best practices for professional conduct expected from domain brokers.

Yesterday afternoon, the ICA invited domain name brokers, who are Bronze-level members or higher, to commit to abide by the Voluntary Broker Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct covers topics like working with a client’s best interests in mind, using a brokerage agreement that lists all terms and fees, disclosing any conflicts of interests, and quite a few other expectations and best practices that professional domain brokers should maintain.

ICA Submits Comment to ICANN on Transfer Policy Report

0

George Kirikos published several articles on FreeSpeech.com about the ICANN public comment period for the domain name transfer policy review. George submitted a comment requesting additional time for the comment period, and the submission deadline was extended to August 16th. I chatted with George, and he doesn’t feel that this new deadline is sufficient time for him, and continues to believe that more time is required to complete a full submission.

One of the reasons I am a member of the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) is because I rely on their advocacy on behalf of domain investors. The ICA participates in ICANN discussions, and I believe their submissions hold more weight than an individual submission I would make. In addition, I believe the ICA is more knowledgable about various ICANN policy-related topics and can provide more comprehensive commentary than I could.

Nominations Open for 2022 Lonnie Borck Memorial Award

The Lonnie Borck Memorial Award honors was established to honor someone who has made “an exceptional contribution to fostering a sense of community within the domain name industry.” The award was established to honor the memory of Lonnie Borck, a domain investor and friend of mine who passed away in 2016.

The Internet Commerce Association will be awarding this year’s award in person at NamesCon. The ICA has opened the nomination process for this year’s Award, and any member of the domain name industry can submit a nomination. ICA Members will then elect the top three candidates, and the winner will be chosen from the top three by the ICA Board.
