ICANN and Encirca
On October 13, 2003, Thomas Barrett urged ICANN to impose a moratorium on the introduction of all registry services until the GNSO has the opportunity to develop a consensus-based policy. He emphasized that the internet community, including all ICANN Constituencies, deserve clarity regarding the ICANN process to exercise a consensus on the new registry services. Barrett also said that the entire DNS industry should ensure that the public has the highest confidence that changes are being introduced according to a well-defined process based on consensus agreements. Furthermore, he applauded ICANN's decision to facilitate proposals though timely, transparent and predictable procedures for the introduction of registry services 
On March 14, 2005, ICANN expressed its' concern regarding the registration practices of Encirca's ProForwarding Service on .pro, which is a restricted domain intended only for professional individuals and entities. ICANN alleged that their ProForwarding Service "seems to be designed to circumvent these restrictions by allowing anybody to obtain “the full benefits of domain registration” in .pro without having any professional credentials". There were a number of communications made to resolve the issue.
