During the ICANN meeting in Paris last month Afilias, the company that manages the .info registry, put forward a proposal to change some of the .info policies.
The idea behind the new policy (PDF) is to help stem online fraud and cybercrime of various kinds, however the policy document itself is very ambiguous in its wording.
While ambiguity might be a good idea in certain contexts it’s not a good idea when it can affect people’s businesses and income.
Both myself and several other people have gone on the record about this, but ICANN seem to have approved the policy change regardless.
