Jonathan Cohen is a lawyer and academic.

He was selected for the ICANN Board by the Domain Name Supporting Organization for a term starting at the 1999 annual meeting and expiring in June 2003.[1]

He has practiced in all areas of intellectual property law since 1971 and has lectured and written extensively both in Canada and internationally on various aspects of trademark law, including, more recently, domain name issues.[2]

Mr. Cohen has taken an active role in Internet governance reform and the ICANN formation process from the start, beginning with his participation in the WIPO-IAHC meetings in Geneva in 1997, through the formation of the DNSO, and ultimately the Intellectual Property Constituency, where he served as the IPC’s first President and Names Council representative until his election to the Board. Mr. Cohen has also co-chaired Working Groups A and B, and worked on the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy.[3]
