Historical Significance
Board approves the implementation of the UDRP, creation of the ASO and PSO

ICANN 3 was held in Santiago, Chile, in August 1999. The meeting followed the same structure as previous meetings, and many of the sessions were broadcast over the Internet. All meetings were held at the College of Economic Sciences of the University of Chile [1]. Webcasting and scribing services were provided by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.[2]


The board took further steps in the creation of the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy, approving the implementation of such a policy and offering the following guidance:

1. The registrars' Model Dispute Resolution Policy should be used as a starting point;

2. The President or his delegate should convene a small drafting committee including persons selected by him to express views and consider the interests of the registrar, non-commercial, individual, intellectual property, and business interests;
3. In addition to the factors mentioned in paragraph 171(2) of the WIPO report, the following should be considered in determining whether a domain name was registered in bad faith:
(a) Whether the domain name holder is making a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the mark, without intent to misleadingly divert consumers for commercial gain or to tarnish the mark;
(b) Whether the domain name holder (including individuals, businesses, and other organizations) is commonly known by the domain name, even if the holder has acquired no trademark or service mark rights; and
(c) Whether, in seeking payment for transfer of the domain name, the domain name holder has limited its request for payment to its out-of-pocket costs.
4. There should be a general parity between the appeal rights of complainants and domain name holders; and

5. The dispute policy should seek to define and minimize reverse domain name hijacking.[3]

Formation of Supporting Organizations

The Address Supporting Organization was approved as an affiliation of three [[regional internet registry|regional Internet registries]: RIPE NCC, ARIN, and APNIC, operating under a Memorandum of Understanding with ICANN.[3] In addition, having finalized a Memorandum of Understanding with the IETF, W3C, ITU, and ETSI, the board ratified that MOU and took steps to form the Protocol Supporting Organization.[3]
