Dear Thiago, dear all,

Thanks for these comments.

Personally I'm a bit unclear why some of the issues identified as such by members of the Jurisdiction Subgroup (was it in August, when we lastly did so after being requested doing so?) did not receive the form of draft recommendations in the Subgroup.

Regarding tailored or limited immunities (remembering how Thomas Rickert had described this when the scope was last discussed...), we had various debates on it  mainly on list that were rather inconclusive (the way I remember it).

At the same time when we were asked to identify issues to be discussed, if my recollection is correct, Thiago presented an issue proposal... So I wonder why this did not get into the recommendation debate stage.

With this I do not suggest to enter a lengthy procedural discussion.

What I would suggest instead is that we request our Brazilian colleagues (and other potentially interested members) to recirculate the issue they had prepared some months ago in the Subgroup and adapt it to a recommendation format.

 This would allow us to discuss the substance in a focused manner in the Subgroup and get back to the Plenary asap.

In a way it would be unfair to all of us not to hold this "final" discussion on this subject after having been presented repeatedly in the CCWG and the Subgroup, when we are still on time (very late I know, but with room to do so).

hope this helps

kind regards

Assunto: Re: [Ws2-jurisdiction] Jurisdiction Subgroup Draft Report for CCWG-Accountability Plenary Review


One of the Subgroup members pointed out a minor editing error in the document.  On pages 13-14, there were several mentions of the RAA, when in fact the language quoted and discussed was from the ICANN Terms and Conditions for Registrar Accreditation Application.  (The reference was correct in the Executive Summary.)  This has now been fixed in the attached.

Some minor formatting errors crept into the Report when it was converted from Word to PDF.  A new PDF of the report is attached. I've checked each page to confirm that the formatting errors were resolved.

Thank you to Jorge Cancio for catching this problem!

I am pleased to submit the Draft Report from the Jurisdiction Subgroup for consideration by the CCWG-Accountability Plenary.

It is my understanding that a minority viewpoint is expected to be submitted.  In the interests of time, this will be submitted to the Plenary separately from the Draft Report.

During the preparation of the OFAC Recommendation, the Subgroup considered an email where a registrar declined to do business with a potential reseller, based on the registrar’s policy of not doing business with people with Iranian passports.  The Subgroup also learned that this registrar, which had been registering domains for a number of Iranian nationals, refused to continue to do business with them.  The Subgroup has concluded that, to the extent these instances are related to OFAC, the concerns raised by these instances are adequately covered in the Recommendation already without any additional changes.  This is not in any way a comment on the validity of these particular concerns.  The Subgroup will consider creating "stress tests" based on these scenarios.

I look forward to the Plenary's reading of the Draft Report.

Best regards,

Greg Shatan
