livetreamOn Tuesday February 13 2018 at 4pm EST TeleCommunities Canada presents a Pre-ICANN 61 Readout at the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) offices in Ottawa, Canada. ICANN readouts are outreach events designed to inform Internet end users about evolving issues at the international level. Speakers at this event will highlight: — ongoing controversies in the top-level domain space (is .amazon a region or a company?), jurisdictional concerns around ICANN as a legal entity under California law, and rapidly emerging privacy issues involving Whois and the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The session will open with a quick primer on ICANN – why end user participation matters and how to get involved in the multistakeholderism model. Speakers: Joe Catapano & Chris Mondini, ICANN; Stephanie Perrin (GNSO); Allan McGillivery, CIRA; Pam Miller and Luisa Paez (GAC). The event will be webcast live on the Internet Society Livestream Channel (open captions). Remote Participation will be via Adobe Connect.
