The COVID Registration Spike and Abuse: Lessons Learned from a Contracted Party perspective Webinar - 11 June 2020



Session Description:

Since the outset of the Coronavirus pandemic, there has been a sharp increase in domain names related to the virus.  There is an understandable concern by many in the ICANN community that these domains were/are seeking to exploit the situation and use these registrations to propagate systemic abuse.  With several months of learning under our collective belt, this webinar seeks to take a look at the data related to these registrations (presented by ICANN Org), discuss concerns around the registrations from law enforcement (PSWG), and examine abuse levels and responses to that abuse from registries and registrars (CPH).
