To GNSO Council


Dear Sirs,


I have been informed that on October 31, 2007  ICANN's policy advisory body
( the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council) will vote on
three motions determining the 

future structure of the domain name and whois-system.


The whois-system is 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 instances free open access to domain ownership information is a
prerequisite for taking swift legal action in order to prevent internet
fraud and other schemes which may

confuse and deceive the public in the internet market place.


Therefore GNSO Council is respectfully requested to adopt motion 2 and to
reject motion 1 and 3.


Yours faithfully,


Aadt W. Prins


Patent Attorney
