The following motion was passed by the GNSO on April 12, 2012.  I am providing 
as an FYI


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

Whereas on September 7, 2007 the GNSO Council approved by supermajority vote a 
PDP on new gTLDs with a number of recommendations, none of which afforded 
special protection to specific applicants;

Whereas the GNSO Council passed a resolution approving new protections for the 
first round of the new gTLD program as recommended by the GNSO's International 
Olympic Committee (IOC) and Red Cross/Red Crescent (RC) Drafting Team;

Whereas this resolution indicated that further discussions were required on 
associated policies relating to protections for certain international 
organizations at the second level, if any;

Whereas comments have been received coincident with the motion that included 
requests from international governmental organizations requesting the same 
protective rights as those for the IOC/RCRC for the current and future rounds 
of the new gTLD program;

And whereas various possible criteria for the grant of protective rights to 
such organizations was suggested at the ICANN meeting in Costa Rica.

Now therefore be it resolved,

The GNSO Council requests an issue report to precede the possibility of a PDP 
that covers the following issues:

- Definition of the type of organizations that should receive special 
protection at the top and second level, if any; and

- Policies required to protect such organizations at the top and second level.
