I agree with Konstantinos.

Julie – would you be kind enough to make my apologies to the DT? I will not be 
able to make the meeting tonight. Thanks Julie.

Thanks Julie  for sharing the latest the latest version of the charter: my 
first question is when these changes took place – I see a lot of substantive 
issues that I don’t recall us discussing in our meeting. In any case, I think 
some of the additions are not part of this group’s mandate as they relate to 
substance rather than the actual drafting of the charter. More specifically:

The recommendations identified as issues to be addressed are as follows:

1.     The creation, maintenance and publication by ICANN of public e-mail 
contact information for all registrars for use with UDRP-related domain lock 

This is a substantive issue that relates to the aftermath of the domain name 
locking and the channels of communication between Registrars and ICANN. it is 
not for this group to determine this, especially we are still unaware of the 
exact process leading to this.

2.     The creation of an outline of a proposed procedure which a complainant 
must follow in order for a registrar to process a domain lock request.

Again, here I feel as if we are jumping many steps. We are already directing 
the creation of a complaint? It is not for this group to design the process.

3.     The standardization of a time frame by which a registrant must lock a 
domain after a UDRP has been filed.
This sounds as if this group has decided that standardization is necessary. We 
are not here to do that  since we are not aware of all the substantive issues.

4.     The defining of what constitutes  a “locked" domain name.

I think this is very relevant for the PDP group to determine.

5.     Regarding the role of a privacy service provider within the 
domain-locking process, which party will be locked-in as registrant. The 
privacy service provider or the actual registrant masked by the proxy service?
this is substantive and I don’t think we should be focusing on this issue. and 
I agree with Victoria that it raises significant privacy issues that are also 
currently discussed as part of the WHOIS.

6.     The standardization of a time frame by which a domain should be unlocked 
after termination of a UDRP.
The same as 3.

Generally, I am a bit sceptical about these 6 points. I think that they are 
misleading and perhaps if we added ‘whether’ in the beginning it would make 
them look less substantive. In any case I am against incorporating number 1 and 
5 within the charter. These two points are clearly outside the scope of this

Subject: [gnso-lockdomainname-dt] Charter Drafting Team: Latest Revisions

Dear Drafting Team members,

Attached is a revised version of the Draft Charter with changes incorporated 
from Randy Ferguson, Lisa Garono, and Matt Schneller.  Please add any changes 
you may have in redline to this document, or send them to me to incorporate.

Also, as a reminder our next call is scheduled on Tuesday 21 February 2012 at 
1930 UTC, 11:30 PST, 14:30 EST, 19:30 London, 20:30 CET, 03:30 Hong Kong.  A 
reminder with the teleconference details will be sent prior to the call.  The 
meeting details and documents for review, including the latest draft charter 
revision, are on the wiki at: 

Our goal is to submit the Draft Charter to the GNSO Council to consider at its 
meeting on Wednesday, 14 March in Costa Rica.   The deadline to submit items 
for Council consideration at that meeting and any associated motions is 06 
March 2012.  However, if we can send something earlier it will give the Council 
more time to consider the document, which could be helpful.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,


Julie Hedland
Policy Director
