ICANN- Quick Guide to Sydney mtg

A Quick Guide to Sydney material
by Kurt Pritz on June 1, 2009

Over the weekend, we published quite a bit of material. It was published now to meet a request by the Board and the community that we post three business weeks prior to the start of a meeting; these series of postings ensure that the bulk of materials being considered during Sydney will meet this goal.

With Sydney opening on Monday 22 June, we strived to have this information up before this morning, Monday 1 June.

As such, it is probably as comprehensive a set of documents as ICANN has published for any meeting - addressing hard issues on IDNs, an important report on intellectual property issues as related to domain names, another huge piece of comment and analysis related to new TLDs, new financial analysis, more on community travel (which is coming), and other areas. I’m also pretty confident that this is the earliest (relative to an ICANN meeting) that this kind of material has been available.

So what was included?

IDNs:
We posted the third revision to the Fast Track Implementation Plan. This was accompanied by explanatory memos that discuss: the form of agreement we will have with IDN TLD operators, financial contributions to ICANN, and the use of variant tables. The bottom line – we plan to launch this process right after the meeting in Seoul.


New gTLDs:
We posted the Analysis of public comment, as we did before the Mexico City meeting. This document is intended to demonstrate ICANN’s careful consideration of all the comment. We decided to not publish a new version of the Guidebook since the overarching issues are not yet resolved.

Instead, we have identified several areas where the Guidebook can be amended and published excerpts – just those sections that are changing. We also published explanatory memos: discussing whether Chinese, Japanese, and Korean TLDs should be allowed to register one or two-character names since complete words in those languages are generally that short; describing all the research that has been done regarding morality & public order issues; describing a process for contractual compliance in community-based TLDs; and advocating a requirement that registries maintain thick Whois databases.

IRT and Trademark Protection: The Implementation Recommendation Team was created by a resolution of the Board to develop solutions to trademark protection issues. The IRT made its final report, it was posted yesterday. The report represents a ton of work by the 18 members of the team for which we are very grateful.

As an ICANN staff member closely associated with this important and huge amount of work, I would like to thank everyone from staff and the community that worked so hard in making it possible to publish this in time for review and discussion in Sydney. END QUOTE

So 2 more opportunities for the gTLD crowd to stick a stick in the wheel.

or perhaps two more opportunities to remove the stick from the gTLD wheel?

Re: ICANN- Quick Guide to Sydney mtg

So this is where we are it seems?

- Only the current idn.com holder is entitled to receive the idn.idn version.

- After the Seoul meeting we will see the variant tables with all the reserved extensions.

- The only missing link is which technical solution will be used for implementing .com in all languages.

- ICANN wants IDN gTLD's and ccTLD's to run parallel so that looks like we are looking at March 2010 (Release of Cyrillic .рф to the general population).

1) the GNSO Council strongly believes that neither the New gTLD or ccTLD fast track
process should result in IDN TLDs in the root before the other unless both the GNSO and
ccNSO so agree
, and
2) fast track IDN ccTLDs should not be entered into the root if they do not have an
enforceable commitment to do the following:
i) follow security and stability requirements such as those contained in gTLD Registry
contracts, IDN Guidelines and IDN standards;
ii) pay ICANN fees sufficient to ensure that IDN ccTLDs are fully self-funding and are not
cross-subsidized by other ICANN activities.
The resolution is consistent with and furthers the position expressed by the GNSO Council in its
comments in response to the ccNSO-GAC Issues Report on IDN Issues, as well as in its
comments on the IDNC WG Final Report, that “the introduction of IDN gTLDs or IDN ccTLDs
should not be delayed because of lack of readiness of one category, but if they are not
introduced at the same time, steps should be taken so that neither category is advantaged or
disadvantaged, and procedures should be developed to avoid possible conflicts.”

While a technical solution to manage the necessary aliased introduction of variant TLD strings, the proposed recommendation is to ensure that all variant strings are reserved or blocked for allocation.
This is in order to reserve the possibility of allocating variant strings to the appropriate entities.

2.
Blocked registrations – the characters that are variants will result in the blocking of the variant domain name(s). A block of a domain name means that it can never be registered.

Re: ICANN- Quick Guide to Sydney mtg

Nice work piecing the puzzle together
Always have to caution ourselves that politics and greed can change the game,
or just plain stall the process as we have seen over the past few years.
