Thanks Brian.  In asking for this in our last call, I suggested that the rest 
of us could use the list that staff provided as a starting point and add to it 
to make sure that our list is as complete as possible.  So I will get the ball 
rolling on that.

I created the attached list based on Brian's first cut and based on my 
recollection of suggestions that have been proposed or implied in our DT 
discussions.  Note also, that in cases where there are multiple variations of 
particular approaches, I broke those down into sub-approaches so that when I 
take this back to the RySG we can more easily discuss all of the variations and 
hopefully provide more detailed feedback to the DT.

I hope others will modify what I have done to make sure that the list captures 
all of the approaches we have discussed and does so in an accurate manner.  
That should increase our chances of getting full and helpful feedback from our 
respective groups.

Subject: [gnso-iocrc-dt] List of possible approaches for Red Cross/IOC names in 
new gTLDS

In response to the request during the last RC/IOC DT call, please find below a 
list of possible approaches that have been proposed to date for moving forward 
in responding to the GAC proposal to protect the RCRC and IOC names at the 
second level in new gTLDS:

  1.  Maintain the status quo and not provide any new special protections for 
the RCRC/IOC names (i.e., no changes to the current schedule of second-level 
reserved names in the new gTLD Registry Agreement).
  2.  Develop recommendations to implement the GAC proposal such as extending 
protection to all or a subset of RCRC names only, all or a subset of IOC names 
only or, to both sets of each organization's names.
  3.  Consider the proposal to not provide any new protections now and wait to 
see if any additional protections may be necessary after the delegation of the 
first round new gTLD strings and/or consider lowering costs for each 
organization to utilize RPMs ( i.e., Thomas Rickert's proposal)
  4.  Consider possible additional protections for the RCRC/IOC as part of a 
broader PDP on the protection of names for international organizations
  5.  Ask ICANN General Counsel's office to conduct a legal analysis to 
substantiate/verify whether there is clear evidence of treaty law and/or 
statutes that would require registries and registrars to protect IOC and RCRC 
names by law.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need anything further at this 
time.  Thanks.

Best Regards,


Brian Peck
Policy Director
