Marika or Avri or Chuck,

At its last meeting, Council voted to initiate a PDP. It did not (as has been past practice) vote on whether to start a Task Force or WG, presumably because some e-mail votes were being solicited (although the outcome was already determined by those votes cast in person). I assumed that tomorrow's agenda would include that decision, but I now see that PEDNR is not even on the agenda.

Shall we assume that the DT created to do the initial work is now supposed to craft a motion and charter for a WG for decision in Sydney, even though there has not been a formal Council decision to do so? If that is not the case, I don't see what today's meeting is for, but perhaps I am missing something.

Dear All,

In preparation for our call later today, please find below the motion that was adopted by the GNSO Council at its last meeting. For those of you interested, you can find some examples of recent WG charters on the following pages that might help inspire the discussion for the PEDNR WG Charter: <https://st.icann.org/reg-abuse-wg/index.cgi?registration_abuse_policies_working_group>https://st.icann.org/reg-abuse-wg/index.cgi?registration_abuse_policies_working_group and <https://st.icann.org/gnso-council/index.cgi?irtp_pdp_a_wg_charter>https://st.icann.org/gnso-council/index.cgi?irtp_pdp_a_wg_charter.

In addition to the development of a proposed charter, I am hoping to get your thoughts and ideas for the programme of the workshop on Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery that has been scheduled for Wednesday 24 June from 14.00 ? 16.00 in Sydney (see <http://syd.icann.org/node/3869>http://syd.icann.org/node/3869) to allow for a first exchange of views with the broader community on these issues and hopefully attract additional people to join the Working Group.

With best regards,



Motion on Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery

Whereas on 05 December 2008, the GNSO received an Issues Report on
Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (PEDNR);

Whereas on 29 January 2009 the GNSO Council decided to form a Drafting Team
(DT) to consider the form of policy development action in regard to PEDNR;

Whereas a DT has formed and its members have discussed and reviewed the issues
documented in the Issues Report;

Whereas the DT has concluded that although some further information gathering
may be needed, it should be done under the auspices of a PDP;

Whereas staff has suggested and the DT concurs that the issue of registrar
transfer during the RGP might be better handled during the IRTP Part C PDP.


To initiate a Policy Development Process (PDP) to address the issues identified
in the Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery Issues Report.

The charter for this PDP should instruct the Working Group:

that it should consider recommendations for best practices as well as or
instead of recommendations for Consensus Policy;

that to inform its work it should pursue the availability of further
information from ICANN compliance staff to understand how current RAA
provisions and consensus policies regarding deletion, auto-renewal, and
recovery of domain names during the RGP are enforced; and

that it should specifically consider the following questions:

- Whether adequate opportunity exists for registrants to redeem their expired
domain names;

- Whether expiration-related provisions in typical registration agreements are
clear and conspicuous enough;

- Whether adequate notice exists to alert registrants of upcoming expirations;

- Whether additional measures need to be implemented to indicate that once a
domain name enters the Auto-Renew Grace Period, it has expired (e.g., hold
status, a notice on the site with a link to information on how to renew, or
other options to be determined).

- Whether to allow the transfer of a domain name during the RGP.

The GNSO Council further resolves that the issue of logistics of possible
registrar transfer during the RGP shall be incorporated into the charter of the
IRTP Part C charter.
