Comments with NTIA on ICANN, Tie with Department of Commerce Should Not Be Terminated


The fact that ICANN may be making progress toward meeting its responsibilities does not imply that the JPA is no longer needed. Indeed, it may demonstrate the value of the JPA. If ICANN’s progress is related to the JPA and the existing tie to the Department of Commerce, then terminating that arrangement would be counterproductive to continued progress.
