DoCA Submissions Published

Disclaimer: As well as being an auDA Member, I am now an auDA Demand Class Director. The article below is my personal opinion, and does not purport to be the views of auDA.

The Department of Communications and Arts have today published 14 public submissions as part of their review of Australia’s .au domain management.

My understanding is that there are probably a few more where submitters have asked for these not to be published in the public domain.

On top of this, there are interviews that DoCA staff undertook with various individuals. I was one of these.

Once I’ve had a read, I’ll probably do another article next week.

    I’ve read through all the responses,

    Some common themes,

    Supply side branch stacking
    Supply side has gained control over the auDA policy and development process (esp in relation to .au)
    Criticism of directors “swapping sides”
    Board weighted towards industry insiders (registrars and domainers) rather than representing general public
    Criticism over auDA membership fees, this is not just from individuals but also from comes from organisations such as eDAC & Internet Australia. The CIRA model seems to be a common suggestion
    Need for by-election for casual vacancies
