Hello everyone,


This is the formal NCSG statement for the record:

The NCSG rejects the 3b "temporary registration block" as defined in the 
IOC/IFRC Drafting Team's recommendation for a number of reasons:

1. Policy recommendations from the GNSO on reserved names can only be made by a 
PDP that is properly constituted and is run according to the process rules as 
established in the ICANN by-laws.

2. This drafting team continues to circumvent proper process by attempting to 
make policy as opposed to performing its proper function of fact gathering and 
presenting information to the council that can be used in deciding on the 
viability and charter for such a PDP.

The NCSG supports the PDP only on the condition that among the possible 
outcomes is the current status quo, no protection at the second level. We 
support the PDP as the only appropriate place to resolve this proposal among 
competing proposals. We believe it is illegitimate to change reserved name 
policy,,,,, no matter how it is euphemistically named, before the PDP runs its 
course.

The NCSG is also aware of other types of humanitarian organization that also 
demand these privileges and we feel that any discussion on granting such 
special reservations must include a full discussion of all who request such 
reservations.

Finally the NCSG does not believe that the reserved name list can be used 
solely for the purpose of new gTLDs, and that any decisions on adding names to 
the reserved list must take incumbent registries into account.


Thank you.


Cheers

Mary

RE: [gnso-iocrc-dt] IOCR discussion group - MP3, attendance 26 September 2012

All,
As Berry and I are working on the public announcement, we now understand the 
NCSG position that they are in favor of the PDP (Recommendation 1), but do not 
agree with Recommendations 2 and 3 with respect to any reservation or 
moratorium on the IOC/RCRC names.  That will be reflected in the post.  I will 
classify it as consensus on Recommendation 1, and strong support on 
Recommendations 2 and 3 with opposition from the NCSG.
I hope that will be acceptable to the group.    If the NCSG can get in an 
official statement tonight that would be great, otherwise I will just note the 
opposition in the introduction note for the public comment.
Thanks for the lively discussion today.

Just to add, as the NCSG alternate and NCUC rep to this DT (and incidentally 
chair of the NCSG Policy Committee) - there has been vigorous discussion on the 
NCSG listserv for quite some time on this matter. While there was disagreement 
and debate at some point about specific points such as the appropriate scope of 
a PDP, the differences between top and second level protections and the 
implications of recommendations applying only to the second round of new gTLD 
applications, most of the participants who commented on the issue either 
opposed or did not favor temporary reservations. Most members who spoke up also 
favored a PDP, with many supporting a broad PDP.


The two sister constituencies both have representatives on the NCSG Policy 
Committee, where the DT's proposals have been circulated. In addition, NPOC was 
the constituency which voiced concerns (including circulating a proposal at the 
Costa Rica meeting) that protection for names of IGOs and other 
internationally-based organizations should also be considered by the GNSO. This 
was raised and discussed during the GNSO Council debates on the IGO issue.


In sum, both NPOC and NCUC members have had time and opportunity to discuss and 
debate the matter. The NCSG Policy Committee has also separately been kept 
updated on the work of the DT. As such, I feel confident in stating that there 
is consensus both within NCUC and the broader NCSG for supporting a PDP that 
includes consideration of the IGO question and similar protection for other 
international organizational names (without any formal comment at this point as 
to how that PDP should be structured) but not for any temporary reservations as 
proposed in the current DT document.


As Avri has said, the NCUC/NCSG participant who was able to be on the last call 
has explained to the membership that he was attempting to convey his personal 
views.


Cheers

Mary
