Jeff - I think with this Board resolution there will be a lot of new options
put forward as well so I think we can consider the previous ones like the RySG
as well as the new ones that a few participants may put forward as well.

Subject: [gnso-vi-feb10] Does Board Motion change Objectives
As you are no doubt aware, the ICANN Board passed motion below talking about a
strict separation default pending the outcome of this process. Given that
motion, how does that affect, if at all, the work of this group. There are a
number of references in the newly passed charter to options presented in the
DAG. Are those still the only relevant options for this group to look at?
There were other proposals not put in the DAG by ICANN staff such as the ones
put forward by the RySG which given the outcome of the motion we would like to
see back on the table.
Also, do we need to quickly recommend changes to any of the objectives given
I hope everyone had a good trip home and is ready to begin the work.
5. New gTLDs Implementation – Vertical Integration
Whereas, decisions about industry structure affect many aspects of the public
interest – prices, service offerings, sources and uses of data, and more;
Whereas, ICANN has obtained several studies, and heard from Industry
participants about the possible benefits and detriments of choices related to
ownership integration or non-integration;\
Whereas, the market for new gTLDs will be dynamic, and has yet to emerge. In
particular, there are concerns about how industry structure could affect
consumer data protection;
Whereas, the GNSO is in an active policy development process on the issue of
Vertical Integration, and the Board does not want to create an environment in
which it would be difficult to later harmonize the new gTLD marketplace with
the GNSO policy result; and
Whereas, it is important to establish a baseline approach to registry-registrar
separation for the new gTLD process to move ahead.
Resolved (2010.03.12.17), within the context of the new gTLD process, there
will be strict separation of entities offering registry services and those
acting as registrars. No co-ownership will be allowed.
Resolved (2010.03.12.18), if a policy becomes available from the GNSO, and
approved by the Board prior to the launch of the new gTLD program, that policy
will be considered by the Board for adoption as part of the New gTLD Program.
