Manwin Licensing International, the owner of numerous licenses and trademarks for adult oriented domain names such as YouPorn and xTube filed a request for an Independent Review Panel on November 16, 2011. The company claimed that the ICANN Board fall short in addressing important issues such as competition, consumer protection, malicious abuse and rights protection prior in connection with its approval of the .xxx TLD in favor of ICM Registry. In addition, Manwin alleged that ICANN failed to compel ICM to follow its registry contract and allowed the company to engage in anti-competitive practice and violate IP rights.<ref>
