To GNSO Council
On October 31, 2007, ICANN's policy advisory body (the Generic Names
Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council) will vote on three motions that
will determine the future structure of the domain name and Whois system.
I have been informed that the Whois system is vey important for
trademark owners because it is used daily by law enforcement, businesses
and consumers to manage domain names, perform due diligence, protect
intellectual property rights, and locate and contact the true owners of
problematic web sites. In many cases, free open access to domain name
ownership information is a prerequisite for taking swift legal action
that can prevent Internet fraud and other schemes that confuse and
deceive the public in the Internet marketplace.
Therefore I request the GNSO Council to adopt Motion 2 and to reject
Motions 1 and 3.
