* Review main changes.
* Comments and/or questions.
Item 2: Consent agenda (5 minutes)
A consent agenda item is being added as a standard agenda item to provide for a
simplified process to obtain Council approval on specific tasks.
2.1 GAC/GNSO Issues Related to International Olympic Committee (IOC) & Red
Cross (RC) Names Drafting Team. Approve sending of note to GAC.
Item 3: Best practices for addressing abusive registrations (15 minutes)
Following the recommendation of the Registration Abuse Policies (RAP) Working
Group, the GNSO Council requested a discussion paper on the creation of
non-binding best practices to help registrars and registries address the
abusive registrations of domain names.
The discussion paper recommended the creation of two Working Groups, one to
establish the framework for best practices and one to propose candidate best
practices to address the abusive registration of domain names.
The Council must now consider a motion to set up a drafting team to create the
charter for these groups. This motion was deferred from the May 10, 2012

Item 4: WHOIS Access recommendation (10 minutes)
The WHOIS access recommendation was considered as part of the consent agenda at
the Council's 16 February 2012 meeting.
At that meeting, the ISP constituency requested that the proposal to end this
work be removed from the consent agenda and considered as part of the GNSO's
main agenda. A further suggestion was suggested that constituency/stakeholder
members work with Staff to identify a path forward and that the topic be
further discussed at the Costa Rica meetings.
A motion has been made to consider next steps.

Kurt to them.
