The Business Constituency (BC) already has an approved position on Vertical
Integration (VI), which was posted in Sep-2009.   However, The executive
committee of the BC believes that the BC needs to add clarifications of our
Sep-2009 position in order to make it more relevant the VI Working Group¹s
initial draft report:

1.  clarify what the BC meant by ³status quo² in our statement ³the BC
opposes any change to the status quo for all TLDs intended for sale to third

2. clarify what the BC meant by ³internal use² in our statement ³The BC
believes that uniquely for domain names intended for internal use, the
principle of registry-registrar vertical separation should be waived.²

3.  encourage continued work to define eligibility and scope for dot-brand
(single registrant) exceptions.

We drafted a comment along these lines and have posted it here.
