ICANN vocal about responsibilities, not responsible for content regulation

ICANN has been was vocal about its responsibilities: ‘ICANN is not a global regulator of Internet content, nor should the 2013 Registry Accreditation Agreement (RAA) be interpreted in such a way as to put us in that role’, ICANN’s Chief Contract Compliance Officer said in a blog post entitled ICANN is not the Internet Content Police. ‘If content is to be policed, the burden is on these institutions, and not ICANN, to undertake such regulation… ICANN was never granted, nor was it ever intended that ICANN be granted, the authority to act as a regulator of Internet content’.
