Elliot Noss, Tim Denton, and Ross Rader from Tucows have published a public discussion draft concerning “ICANN’s role in relation to contracted parties.” In that document, they call for the establishment of a process by which registrars and registries could resolve commercial disputes arising out of the respective ICANN agreement: We are talking about creating an adjudication process for commercial disputes, and a process of confirmation, referral, amendment, or denial of these adjudications by the Board of ICANN. The document does not push for a “contracted parties SO” separate from the DNSO.
