Freedom of expression and privacy are internationally recognised human rights. This paper addresses the privacy and freedom of expression issues that arise in relation to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) policies and procedures. In particular, it explores the corporate responsibility of ICANN to respect human rights. In this sense, it seeks to develop and go beyond the Council of Europe report published in June 2014, which explored the duty of governments – rather than corporations – to protect human rights.
