Why is ICANN contacting me regarding the WDRP? ICANN is not my registrar.

ICANN oversees the domain name system, but it does not send out WDRP notices. WDRP notices are sent by domain name registrars or resellers in order to comply with an ICANN policy. Although some registrars or resellers might send out messages from an "icann@" email account, these messages do not come from ICANN. ICANN requires domain name registrars to send WDRP notices to registrants in order to ensure that WHOIS records are maintained accurately.
