Re: [gtld-council] modifications to new gTLD recommendations #3 and 6
Thanks, Philip. Personally, I would be happy with this approach. So if there are no objections from others to it, I'll draft a stmt for #21 and send it to the list tonight for comment.
Thanks, Robin Philip Sheppard wrote:
As there seems to be a logical difference between a string infringing a third party right and a process infringing freedom of expression, is not the solution to make two beautifully worded recommendations, rather than one ugly hodge-podge we currently have ? So recomm 3 reads: Strings must not infringe the existing legal rights of others that are recognized or enforceable under generally accepted and internationally recognized principles of law. Examples of such legal rights include, but are not limited to, the rights defined in the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property and in particular trade-mark rights. And over to Robin for a whole new recomm 21 about the "process" and "freedom of expression". Philip
