FYI, the following resolution was passed by the GNSO Council at the meeting
on 7 May 2009.  It will be a PDP about "Post-Expiration Domain Name
Recovery", and will look at issues around expirations and deletions.


* * * 



Motion on Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery proposed by Avri Doria and
seconded by Chuck Gomes


Whereas on 05 December 2008, the GNSO received an Issues Report on
Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (PEDNR);


Whereas on 29 January 2009 the GNSO Council decided to form a Drafting Team
(DT) to consider the form of policy development action in regard to PEDNR;


Whereas a DT has formed and its members have discussed and reviewed the
issues documented in the Issues Report;


Whereas the DT has concluded that although some further information
gathering may be needed, it should be done under the auspices of a PDP;


Whereas staff has suggested and the DT concurs that the issue of registrar
transfer during the RGP might be better handled during the IRTP Part C PDP.




To initiate a Policy Development Process (PDP) to address the issues
identified in the Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery Issues Report.

The charter for this PDP should instruct the Working Group:


that it should consider recommendations for best practices as well as or
instead of recommendations for Consensus Policy;

that to inform its work it should pursue the availability of further
information from ICANN compliance staff to understand how current RAA
provisions and consensus policies regarding deletion, auto-renewal, and
recovery of domain names during the RGP are enforced; and

that it should specifically consider the following questions:


. Whether adequate opportunity exists for registrants to redeem their
expired domain names;


. Whether expiration-related provisions in typical registration agreements
are clear and conspicuous enough;


. Whether adequate notice exists to alert registrants of upcoming


. Whether additional measures need to be implemented to indicate that once a
domain name enters the Auto-Renew Grace Period, it has expired (e.g., hold
status, a notice on the site with a link to information on how to renew, or
other options to be determined).


. Whether to allow the transfer of a domain name during the RGP.


The GNSO Council further resolves that the issue of logistics of possible
registrar transfer during the RGP shall be incorporated into the charter of
the IRTP Part C charter.
