ICANN updates new TLD auction plans, still no resolution for indirect contention

ICANN has published new rules for upcoming auctions which will resolve top level domain strings with more than one applicant. ICANN has published updated rules for its so-called “Auctions of Last Resort” to resolve new top level domain name contention sets. It has also published a draft schedule for the auctions. ICANN hopes to resolve 20 contention sets per month via auction. With 201 contention sets, this means the auction procedure could extend into 2015. This gives additional incentive to applicants in a contention set to resolve the contention via other methods. The updated auction rules don’t include plans for contention sets that include indirect contention, which suggests that ICANN still doesn’t know how it will resolve these sticky scenarios (or it hopes they will resolve themselves on their own). .Car(s) is an example of one of these complicated contention sets.
