Doug Isenberg Quoted in Article About '.bible' Top-Level Domain

Doug Isenberg was quoted in an article about the ".bible" top-level domain (TLD) published by Religion News Service, "American Bible Society’s .bible domain policies restrict religious freedom online, critics say."

The article examines a controversy related to restrictions on use of the ".bible" TLD, which is operated by the American Bible Society.

The article also discusses an unusual dispute policy for resolving ".bible" domain name disputes, which requires that panelists take a religious oath. Isenberg first brought this policy to light in a blog post in June 2016, "The DotBible Litmus Test for Domain Name Dispute Panelists."

"I've been a domain dispute panelist for a long time and I've never been asked to sign any type of statement before about my religious beliefs, or political beliefs, or anything other than a requirement that I can be neutral and impartial in reaching a decision," the article quotes Isenberg as saying.

Isenberg serves as a domain name panelist for the World Intellectual Property Organization, (WIPO), the Forum (formerly the National Arbitration Forum), the Czech Arbitration Court (CAC), and the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre (BCICAC).
