I agree with Jeff. Many of these edits belong only in a minority report . . . if anywhere. It would be great if the BC would highlight the differences between this STI consensus TM Clearinghouse proposal and the IRT IP Clearinghouse consensus proposal that has caused it to garner such ire and derision? I also agree with Jeff that the BC cannot be accurate in its claim that a centralized sunrise database doesn't benefit BC members at all and that it benefits registries over its BC members. This addition is particularly inaccurate, especially in the context of a sunrise process. "The possibility to circumvent the whole Clearinghouse system due to its inapplicability to Post launch thereby allowing gaming and making it irrelevant in the first 30 seconds of lunch." How would the Clearinghouse be circumvented, gamed, or irrelevant in a Sunrise process? Also, Jeff, is it fair to assume that the IP Claims process wasn't gamed and rendered irrelevant during the .biz roll-out? What is the difference now? Finally, what's the relevance of when lunch is served anyway :-)?

I do not believe the BC minority position should be sprinkled throughout each and every recommendation. A note should indicate there is a minority position and state that at the end. In addition, the BC should not use this report as an advocacy piece, but rather stick to the facts. Lets discuss on our call, but the Registries are not very happy with how this has come out either, but we are willing to live with compromise. The BC statement talking about the Clearinghouse benefitting only the Registries is not only incorrect, but is a complete distortion of reality. The BC can make their arguments to the GNSO and to the Board, but there is no place for that kind of statement in this report. Best regards, Jeffrey J.
