Re: [gnso-igo-ingo] RE: New Board (NGPC) resolution and update
Hi,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. avri On 15-Jan-14 11:17, Claudia MACMASTER TAMARIT wrote:
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.

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: http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/resolutions-new-gtld-09jan14-en.htm#2.d.i 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 Report.
