On Sept. 12, the ICANN Board New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC) reported on its September meeting where it reached a decision regarding the Government Advisory Committee’s (GAC) issues concerning certain particular applications for new gTLDs and overarching issues with consumer choice, safety and security on the Internet. The report issued in the form of a report card indicated that the NGPC proposed position on all issues is consistent with GAC advice. However, several issues, although purportedly consistent with the GAC’s position, were still under consideration by the NGPC.
