I mentioned on my main blog some of the shenanigans at the EUrid session at ICANN in Lisbon.
What I failed to mention was the much talked about code of conduct. (The temptation to make snide remarks about the choice of domain is strong, but I shall resist!)
I would apologise for that oversight, however that would be hypocritical.
I’m not sorry that I didn’t mention it sooner, as I think it is laughable.
You can download the full documents from the EUrid code of conduct site which include the charter and the accompanying procedural document.
Why do I find it laughable?
Well pretty much every item in the code of conduct charter is either covered by European law, industry best practice or most registrar contracts that I’ve seen ie. if the registrars aren’t following those guidelines shouldn’t they lose their accreditation anyway?
