Nominet, who operate the UK registry, are a private not-for-profit company with a public purpose objective and any changes to the way in which the registry is managed is done so through a multi-stakeholder approach. The Government supports the multi-stakeholder approach to the way the internet is managed. There is an active secondary market for domain names and Nominet has robust procedures in place to ensure brands and trademarks are adequately protected.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes anonymity online is an important protection for people living in oppressive regimes around the world. That said, anonymous posting should not be a tool to help those seeking to abuse others online. The Government expects all social media to make it easy for users to choose not to receive anonymous posts, to have simple mechanisms for reporting abuse and to take action promptly when abuse is reported.</p><p>Removing the ability to make anonymous postings will not prevent cyber bullying behaviour. Protecting children online is everyone’s responsibility. The position remains that where something is illegal offline it is also illegal online and there is already legislation which applies.</p> more like this
