To the Interim ALAC:

On 21 February 2003, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
sent to ICANN a letter (copy attached) describing two decisions of WIPO
concerning recommendations about domain names that are similar to the
names and acronyms of International Intergovernmental Organizations and
country names.  WIPO member states requested that these recommendations
be transmitted to ICANN.

In response to the WIPO letter, on 12 March 2003, the ICANN Board
invited all ICANN Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees
(including the ALAC) to provide, no later than 12 May 2003, any comments
that they may formulate, according to their processes, concerning the
matters discussed in the WIPO letter.

If the Interim ALAC has any comments, they should be transmitted to me
as ICANN Secretary, no later than 12 May 2003.  Thank you for your

Best regards,

Louis Touton
ICANN Secretary
