However, claiming immunity in this way effectively voids the underlying ruling, as the IGO is no longer agreeing to submit to the jurisdiction of the court in question.

All 14 individual commentators opposed the development of policy recommendations that would apply specifically to IGOs and domain name disputes when the IGO files a complaint against a domain name registrant. Many worried that the recommendations would harm or reduce registrant rights if they restricted a registrant’s ability to file judicial proceedings against an IGO or compel a registrant to agree to arbitration.<ref>[https://itp.cdn.icann.org/en/files/generic-names-supporting-organization-council-gnso-council/public-comment-summary-report-epdp-igo-20dec2021-en.pdf Public Comment Summary Report on Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs, ICANN Files]

IGOS welcomed the team's efforts to clarify IGOs' ability to file a dispute and IGO jurisdictional immunity. However, they were concerned that arbitration would not be recognized as a globally accepted means of resolving disputes. They supported the elimination of the need for IGOs to agree to submit to Mutual Jurisdiction when filing a complaint and arbitration as a default option following a UDRP or URS proceeding.<ref>[https://itp.cdn.icann.org/en/files/generic-names-supporting-organization-council-gnso-council/public-comment-summary-report-epdp-igo-20dec2021-en.pdf Public Comment Summary Report on Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs, pg 3, ICANN Files]

Domainers opposed the recommendations, especially the elimination of the Mutual Jurisdiction requirement.
