ICANN launches public consultation on draft PTI articles of incorporation

ICANN has launched a public comment proceeding seeking input on the draft PTI Articles of Incorporation. These were developed to meet the recommendations in the IANA stewardship transition proposal that a new legal entity, referred to as PTI (Post Transition IANA), be formed as an affiliate of ICANN to perform the naming-related IANA functions. ICANN also intends to subcontract the performance of the numbering and protocol parameter-related IANA functions to PTI. The public comment period stays open until 31 July.
