EU court could settle ICANN data gathering dispute

The internet’s global domain name organisation, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), has appealed a recent ruling by a court in Germany on the amount of data that domain name registrars can be forced to gather on people operating websites.

“If the Higher Regional Court does not agree with ICANN or is not clear about the scope of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), ICANN is also asking the Higher Regional Court to refer the issues in ICANN’s appeal to the [CJEU],” ICANN said in a statement.
