===New gTLDs===
At [[ICANN 42]] in Dakar, [[Steve DelBianco]] outlined 4 standing issues that the CBUC had with the current new gTLD [[Applicant Guidebook]]. These points were later picked up by TLD critics, including [[ANA]] and [[CRIDO]], and are likely to influence a December 8th U.S. Senate hearing on new TLDs.<ref>[http://news.dot-nxt.com/2011/12/02/senate-hearing-gtlds Senate Hearing gTLDs]</ref> Those 4 points are:<ref>[http://news.dot-nxt.com/2011/10/25/bc-four-holes-in-gtld-process BC Four Holes in gTLD Process, news.dot-nxt.com]</ref>
# '''Terms of Use Compliance'''- there are no "teeth" that require new registries to follow the approach and model that they publicly state in their contract with ICANN.
# '''Applications for gTLD IDNs'''- the value of gTLD IDNs was stressed by the CBUC, but they pointed out that ICANN had yet to recognize or publicize this exciting development for the global Internet.
