Hi - a follow up to our meeting today in relation to GNSO Council meeting
agenda item and motion on WHOIS Access. The motion is here:


We agreed to suggest a friendly amendment to the motion to refer to the need
for access to WHOIS data to be consistent with public law human rights
standards) and that I would draft some wording to reflect that. please let
me know what you think:

Existing Motion:


Resolved, the GNSO Council recommends that the issue of WHOIS access (to
ensure that WHOIS data is accessible in an appropriately reliable,
enforceable, and consistent fashion) is included in the RAA Policy
Development Process when it commences.

Resolved, the GNSO Council will review by end of September, 2012, whether
the RAA PDP has commenced and included this issue or whether alternative
approaches should be pursued.


To insert after the word "fashion" the words "which does not violate freedom
of expression, privacy and related rights" so it would read:

(to ensure that WHOIS data is accessible in an appropriately reliable,
enforceable, and consistent fashion which does not violate freedom of
expression, privacy and related rights)

Other ideas and suggestions would be welcome
