The purpose of Scope on Syreli is to summarize the procedure’s data and disseminate them as widely as possible. From now on, each month, new statistics and graphics will be posted on the Afnic website, in particular on:
- the number of rulings handed down
- the outcome of the procedures (the distribution of rulings, the number of court cases, etc.)
- the legal status of the claimants and holders (the types of litigation, remedies sought, country of origin of claimants, etc.)
- the length of time the domain name had existed when the Syreli complaint was filed…
As a bonus, from November onwards, Scope of Syreli will focus on the key figures for the previous month.
Reminder: Syreli, the Afnic dispute resolution system, was launched on November 21, 2011 for domain names with the .fr and .re extensions. Since December 6, it also applies to the .tf, .yt, .pm and wf extensions.
Afnic is the acronym for Association Française pour le Nommage Internet en Coopération, the French Network Information Centre. The registry has been appointed by the French government to manage domain names under the .fr Top Level Domain. Afnic also manages the .re (Reunion Island), .pm (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon), .tf (French Southern and Antarctic Territories), .wf (Wallis and Futuna) and .yt (Mayotte) French Overseas TLDs.
In addition to managing French TLDs, Afnic’s role is part of a wider public interest mission, which is to contribute on a daily basis, thanks to the efforts of its teams and its members, to a secure and stable internet, open to innovation and in which the French internet community plays a leading role. As part of that mission, Afnic, a non-profit organization, has committed to devoting 11% of its Revenues from managing .fr Top Level Domain to actions of general interest, in particular by transferring €1.3 million each year to the Afnic Foundation for Digital Solidarity.
Afnic is also the back-end registry for the companies as well as local and regional authorities that have chosen to have their own TLD, such as .paris, .bzh, .alsace, .corsica, .mma, .ovh, .leclerc and .sncf.
Established in 1997 and based in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Afnic currently has nearly 90 employees.
