WIPO has done an excellent job of distilling into a single concise document the key features of policies that should help to minimize the abuse of intellectual property rights in the ccTLDs. These policies should also help in achieving other objectives, such as discouraging consumer fraud and abuse, and increasing the accountability and transparency of activities on open ccTLDs generally. Registries that want their ccTLDs to become significant factors in e-commerce should treat this "Best Practices" document as a baseline upon which to build country-specific practices. I commend WIPO for preparing and issuing this document, and encourage it to step up its efforts to persuade ccTLDs to implement policies in conformance with it.
