This is the Board resolution:
Whereas, ICANN has a requirement to recover the costs of new gTLD
applications and on-going services to new gTLDs;
Whereas numerous stakeholders have, on various occasions, expressed concern
about the cost of applying for new gTLDs, and suggested that these costs
might hinder applicants requiring assistance, especially those from
Resolved (2010.03.12.46), the Board recognizes the importance of an
inclusive New gTLD Program.
Resolved (2010.03.12.47), the Board requests stakeholders to work through
their SOs and ACs, and form a Working Group to develop a sustainable
approach to providing support to applicants requiring assistance in applying
for and operating new gTLDs ."
So we are requested by the Board to develop a sustainable approach to
providing support to applicants requiring assistance in applying for and
operating new gTLDs.
The Board did so considering:
* That ICANN has a requirement to recover the costs of new gTLD
applications and on-going services to new gTLDs
* The community concern about the cost of applying for new gTLDs and
its suggestion that these costs might hinder applicants requiring
assistance, especially those from developing countries
Our mission is to give the board our real and true thoughts on how to
provide support to applicants requiring assistance regardless what can be
accepted or rejected. We are not politicians; we are experts and/or
community members. Our duty is to give the Board what we really think
whatever the others can think, accept or reject.
The Board made this resolution because its now aware of the community
concern about the application and the operation costs. How can we prevent
ourselves from giving recommendations related to cost reduction? Its inside
our mission and its so expressed.
Its also clearly said that there is a requirement to recover the costs of
new gTLD application and on-going services, not the whole new gTLD programme
We are asked to develop a sustainable approach for support to applicants,
and the subsidies are not sustainable.
Our mission is to give the Board our point of view in good conscience, not
to give them what can be accepted. I do think we havent to put entry filter
to our reflection. Lets put all our thoughts on the table without
restrictions, taking into account the board resolution only.
