ANA Says ICANN Needs to Conduct Thorough Review of Conflict of Interest Policies

In a letter submitted to ICANN today, the ANA (Association of National Advertisers) has asked the organization to conduct a thorough and proactive review of the new generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) program. ANA has additionally asked for a broader review of conflicts of interest and ethics policies for the organization "so that ICANN can reclaim its legitimacy as an Internet governance body."

ANA's letter in full available here. ANA is holding a webinar on the proposed ICANN TLD program tomorrow, October 4, at 3 PM.
