I think this is of concern to non-commercial users who seek anonymity or
privacy in domain name registration through the use of third party
agents or attorneys. The attempt to tie registration of a domain name
to "liab[ility] for harm caused by the wrongful use of the domain name"
is both wrong policy and far outside ICANN's scope.
Does NCUC or NCSG want to submit comments? I submit this as a comment
in my individual capacity.

Public Comment: Draft Advisory on the Effect of Registrar Accreditation
Agreement (RAA) Subsection 126.96.36.199
14 May 2010
ICANN has observed community comment concerning the interpretation of
RAA Subsection 188.8.131.52. In order to provide clarity, ICANN is posting
for public comment the following draft advisory
[PDF, 216 KB]. The forum will be open through 9 July 2010.
One central clarification: if a Registered Name Holder licenses the use
of a domain name to a third party, a licensee, the third party is not
the Registered Name Holder of record (or "registrant"). This advisory
also describes under what conditions that a Registered Name Holder is to
identify the licensee and to whom.
Community members are invited to review the draft advisory and comment
on all aspects of the document. At the end of this Public Comment
period, ICANN Staff will review the comments submitted, prepare a
summary analysis of the various submissions, and post the final version
of the advisory.
The Public Comment Forum is located here:
