Thanks for forwarding the BC position on VI/CO. I do have one question on your
statement and maybe you could give some insight into the internal discussion of
the BC and the thought process.
Given the uncertainty of the merits of the arguments either way the BC believes
that the burden of proof must lie with the proponents of change. Those who
favour change must demonstrate:
a) that the competitive benefits outlined above no longer apply and
b) that there will be new competitive benefits and no significant adverse
effects as a result of such change.
If there is a belief that we must maintain strict separation how would the
existing players be able to demonstrate the above if they are not able due to
strict separation? Perhaps you could explain this on the call today

The CBUC position to the VI WG forwarded From: Berry Cobb
Attached is the CBUC position statement from Aug 2009 regarding the issue of
Vertical Integration. While several CBUC members participate on the VI WG, no
substantial change has occurred requiring modification to our consensus. The
CBUC reserves a change to our consensus position, if any, when the VI WG
creates its final report and opens the final community comment period.
In summary, Our present consensus position basically aligns to the ICANN board
resolution in Nairobi and we are pleased with the substantial and adequate
discussion with respect to VI/CO & also Single Registrant TLDs. The CBUC looks
forward to the analysis of proposals by the VI WG and we are optimistic a
solution will be created to match the expansion of gTLDs.
Any specific questions to the CBUC can be filed through Berry Cobb.
