        Hi Everyone,
        Attached is the revised email to go out to the Aftermarket Cohorts.  
Per our discussion Tuesday, we've tailored it to emphasize that this is focused 
on a narrow audience to get their perspective.  As agreed when referencing this 
initiative we will emphasize the narrow Aftermarket focus to avoid anyone 
drawing broader conclusions from the info.
        Comments welcome, please get back to me by Monday so we can start early 
next week.
        Best regards,
        Dear [name],
        We are currently soliciting feedback for the ICANN IRTP-B Workgroup to 
provide a perspective from the secondary domain market on their proposed 
Expedited Transfer Reverse Policy (ETRP) process. We are interested in speaking 
with a select group of individuals and our intent is solely to gain a better 
understanding of the domain aftermarket's concerns about ETRP.  We would like 
to request 15-20 minutes of your time by phone over the next few days.  Your 
responses will be reported to the Workgroup but your identity will remain 
        You can find information on the current proposal here (see pages 49-54 
of this document):
        We would like to gain your insight on the following topics: 

        1.      How many domain hijackings have you experienced (either buying 
or selling)?     
        2.      How many would you normally expect to experience in a year? 
        3.      Were the hijackings resolved to your satisfaction?     
        4.      How were they resolved? 
        5.      Do you feel there are adequate tools and processes in place to 
prevent or resolve domain hijackings? 
        6.      What tools and processes would you recommend in place to 
prevent or resolve domain hijackings? 
        7.      Are you familiar with the Expedited Transfer Reverse Policy 
(ETRP) process that is currently in the comment period at ICANN as proposed in 
the Initial Report on the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy - Part B Policy 
Development Process? 
        8.      If yes, please provide your comments about ETRP. 
        9.      What other suggestions on the domain registration and transfer 
process do you recommend that would make it more secure and less prone to 

        Please let us know if you would be available to discuss by phone within 
the next seven days.
