Re: [gnso-pro-wg] FW: gnso-pro-wg: New Definitions
I don't know if these made it to the list, so I'm forwarding Victoria's suggestions. (Thanks for pulling these together, Victoria.) I had some proposed revisions so I've attached a redline and a clean copy.
I think this is a good addition, but it still does not define eligibility and membership authentication a form of RPM, nor do i think it should, so does not change my view of the principles/ recommendations..
Rights Protection Mechanisms may achieve this purpose indirectly through the adoption and implementation of strict eligibility or membership authentication requirements and second-level name selection criteria.
as you indicate in your definition this is an indirect methods of achieving a similar effect, which means that it cannot be a subspecies of the thing being defined but is rather another thing in itself.
I also still believe that there may be other mechanisms, perhaps yet to be created, that will also achieve a similar effect while not actually being RPMs.
Rights of Others: Had so many objections to this definition that I didn't even know where to start. It's not sufficiently precise as to be accurate. Someone else want to take a stab at it?
I actually thought it was quite a good definition and did contain a fair degree of specificity. Depending on other versions that may yet be submitted, I hope that this definition can persist in the document as at least an alternative definition if not a supported or agreed upon definition.
