Background: One of the new provisions added to the 2009 RAA requires ICANN to develop, in consultation with registrars, a web page that outlines the rights and responsibilities of registrants. This publication is based on initial recommendations from the joint GNSO Council and At-Large Advisory Working Group and subsequent consultations with registrars; it provides a simple and straightforward general statement of the rights and obligations of registrants as they appear under the 2009 RAA.
Domain name holders' rights:
1. Your domain name registration and any privacy / proxy services you may use in conjunction with it must be governed by a registration agreement with an ICANN accredited registrar.
