The 23rd is just the Council vote. After that it still has to go to the Board for further consideration. And that is when GAC advice etc may come in.

It has a ways to go yet.

Thank you, Mary.

To be frank, I find it alarming that the NGPC has decided to extend
temporary protections of IGO acronyms, including “ISO” – in particular
in light of ongoing sunrise periods, in which trademark owners of terms
matching those acronyms might be barred from participating (?).

January 23 cannot come soon enough.

Dear WG members,

We thought you might be interested to know that the ICANN Board, acting
through its New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC), met on 9 January 2014 and
passed the following resolution extending the temporary protections for
certain IGO identifiers first issued in July 2013 (via implementation
through Specification 5 of the New gTLD Registry Agreement) as the
Board, GAC, staff and community continue to work through the
implementation issues. You'll notice that in the rationale for its
resolution (required by the ICANN Bylaws) the NGPC specifically noted
the work done by this WG and our Final Report:

The public comment period for the Final Report closed on 8 January 2014.
The GNSO Council has been asked to approve its report on the
recommendations for sending on to the ICANN Board at the next Council
meeting on 23 January 2014:
http://gnso.icann.org/en/meetings/agenda-council-23jan14-en.htm. The
Board will take up consideration of the recommendations following GNSO
Council approval of its report.

The Preliminary Issue Report on access to the curative rights protection
mechanisms of the UDRP and URS is in preparation, and staff expects to
be able to publish it for the requisite public comment period by the end
of January. Following the close of that public comment period, staff
will prepare a Final Issue Report incorporating public feedback and
input for review and voting on a possible PDP by the GNSO Council.

We hope you all had a happy and festive holiday break, and thank you
again for all the hard work that went into the recommendations and Final
