Subject: [council] Proposed motion on WHOIS

Proposed Motion

In response to the extensive community and Government input on the
definition of the purpose of WHOIS, the GNSO Council agrees to undertake the
following steps:

One:  Each Council member that voted in favour of the definition will
provide a brief explanation of the reason for supporting the resolution and
their understanding of its meaning.

Two: the ICANN staff will provide a summary of the other interpretations of
the definition that have been expressed by the community and Governments.

Three: the Council will undertake a dialogue with the GAC and SSAC on
developing a broadly understandable definition of the purposes for which the
current data required in the RRA is collected.

Four: The GNSO Council requests that the WHOIS task force continue with
their work as specified in the terms of reference taking into account the
recent input that has been provided.

Five: The GNSO Council will take the final report from the WHOIS task force
that addresses all terms of reference, and the definition of purpose of
collecting data derived from the dialogue with the GAC and SSAC, and
consider improving the wording of the WHOIS service definition so that it is
broadly understandable.

The GNSO Council notes that the current definition is related to the service
that provides public access to some or all of the data collected, and is not
a definition of the purpose of the data itself.
