The goal of this presentation is to update the community on the status of the TLD-OPS mailing list, a basic incident response facility that serves as a Contact Repository for ccTLDs. TLD-OPS enables ccTLD operators to easily and quickly look up each other's contact information (name, email address, and phone number), thus allowing them to better handle security and stability-related incidents that require a coordinated response of ccTLDs at the global level.
An operational update on the following topics and/or to answer any specific questions:
- Public Comment feedback on Draft FY16 Operating Plan & Budget
- FY15 Financial update
- Dashboard Progress
- Business Excellence Update
- Other matters that you would like to receive information on (please let us know topic in advance)

The presentation will be about the Name Collision Occurrence Assessment, i.e., the set of measures that are being put in place by new gTLDs to mitigate the risk of name collision. The presentation will explain how name collision could also affect new ccTLDs.
A quick update on Universal Acceptance and the role that ccTLDs have in serving their community.

.fi: Dispute Resolution in the .fi Registry – Sanna Sahlman, .fi
A brief introduction to the Finnish domain name dispute resolution. FICORA (.fi registry) can revoke domain names which have been registered against the Domain Name Act. Domain names are, in principle, free to be chosen, but the domain name registrant is responsible for the lawfulness of its registration. FICORA can afterwards intervene in a unlawful registration of a domain name by, for example, revoking the domain name. Claims are typically arisen/demanded by trademark or trade name holders. FICORA's own legal counsels handle approx. 100 dispute cases during each year. The presentation will cover legal principles, procedure, some practical examples and statistics.
