Item 3: Best practices for addressing abusive registrations (10 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.

4.2 Discussion


Item 5: International Olympics Committee /Red Cross Names Drafting Team (IOC/RC DT) (10 minutes)

At its March 26 meeting, the GNSO Council approved the IOC/RC DT's recommendations (see resolution passed by the Council here http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions#20120326-1).

On April 10, 2012, the Board established the New gTLD Program Committee and granted it all of the powers of the Board to exercise Board-level authority for any and all issues that may arise relating to the New gTLD Program. The Committee met on 10 April 2012 and resolved not to update the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook at this time (seehttp://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/prelim-report-new-gtld-10apr12-en.htm).

In the light of this Board decision, this discussion item aims to determine whether the Council should disband the IOC/RC DT or whether fresh instructions should be given to the DT.

5.3 Next Steps 

Item 6: Update on the Joint Supporting Organisations/Advisory Committee on New gTLD Applicant Support Working Group( JAS WG) (10 minutes)

This item aims to provide the Council with a status update on the JAS WG so that next steps for the group can be determined. 

6.1 WG update from Staff (Kurt Pritz)

6.2 Discussion

6.3 Next steps 

Item 7: Synthesis of WHOIS Service Requirements - The 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. 

This agenda item is to determine what next steps, if any, should be planned for this project item. 

7.1 Update from Staff (X Y)

Item 8: Update on the Internationalised Registration Data WG (10 minutes)

The IRD submitted its final report to the GNSO Council and SSAC on March 3, 2012 for review and approval. 

However, SSAC has recommend some substantial changes and more work may now be needed by the IRD before its final report can be considered. 

This agenda item is to provide an update on these latest developments in the IRD WG's work to the Council.
