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 that will determine the future structure of the domain name and Whois 

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 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 GNSO Council is requested to adopt Motion 2 and to reject Motions 1 
and 3.

Yours faithfully,
Jean Winckels
