Subject: [council] Motion to Request an Issue Report on the protection of names 
and acronyms of IGOs

St├ęphane, all,
please find below a motion that I had already announced in Costa Rica.

Best regards,
Thomas

Motion to Request an Issue Report on the protection of names and acronyms of 
IGOs

Whereas the ICANN Board has granted protection for the Red Cross and the IOC 
until the GNSO and GAC develop policy advice based on the global interest in 
its resolution of June 20, 2011 (2011.06.20.01);

Whereas a drafting team of the GNSO Council was established to look at 
additional top and second level protections for the IOC and the Red Cross/Red 
Crescent movement in the current round of new gTLDs in response to a GAC 
proposal based on the June 20, 2011 Board resolution;

Whereas the drafting team is limited to reviewing only top and second level 
protections for the IOC and Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement;

Whereas the GNSO Council and the GAC were asked in the letter dated March 11, 
2012 by the ICANN Board to provide policy advice in response to a letter dated 
December 13, 2011 from intergovernmental Organizations on the protection of 
additional International Governmental Organization (IGO) names and acronyms 
both on the top and second level;

Whereas it is possible that more organizations might request special protection 
both at the top as well as at the second level for the first and subsequent 
rounds of applications for generic TLDs.

THEREFORE BE IT:


Resolved, the GNSO Council requests an Issue Report on protection of names and 
acronyms of IGOs at the top and second level for all new gTLDs.
