No beach party for policy wonks.

There will be no cavorting with college students on the beach in Cancun next month for domain policy wonks after all.

ICANN, the organization that oversees domain names, has moved its March meeting planned for Cancun to the internet. The meeting will still happen but it will be virtual. All sessions will be held via remote participation.

Fears of spreading a coronavirus, Covid-19, led to the change.

There’s no concern of picking up the virus from locals in Mexico. But many people travel to the conference, including many people from China and surrounding areas.

In a separate announcement, International Trademark Association (INTA) announced that it is moving its April meeting planned for Singapore to a location in the United States.
