ICANN and Antitrust in Sydney

I’ve just returned from Sydney where I was at the ICANN meetings giving a presentation (with Steve Salop of Georgetown Law) and participating in a Q&A on the potential economic consequences of vertical integration between registries and registrars.  I had a great time on the panel, but the highlight for me was spending talking to the various industry and ICANN representatives.  This is a fascinating and dynamic space with more interesting legal and economic issues than one can imagine.  I’m thrilled that I was able to go and learned a lot.

Note to graduate students studying economics, industrial organization, regulation, public and law and economics: this is a field ripe for dissertation topics and in need of both theoretical and empirical contributions.
