[bc-gnso] Clarification as to which draft Charter to comment upon

Dear colleagues,


I would like to suggest the addition of clear language in 3.3.2 to
ensure that business associations like ICC and others who have members
who belong to other ICANN constituencies are not excluded from BC
membership because of the range of their membership. See suggested
addition below in yellow highlighting and underlined. Text to this
effect would ensure that business organizations like ICC, USCIB and
others can remain BC members.

Best regards,



3.3. Membership Criteria

3.3.1 In keeping with the selective membership criteria of other GNSO
constituencies, the Business Constituency represents the interests of a
specific sector of Internet users. The purpose of the Constituency is to
represent the interests of businesses described in Article 3.1.


3.3.2 To avoid conflicts of interest this excludes: not for profit
entities excepting trade associations representing for profit entities;
entities whose prime business is a registry, registry operator,
prospective registry, registrar, reseller, other domain name supplier
interests, or similar; other groups whose interests may not be aligned
with business users described in Article 3.1. Trade associations whose
members may also include companies/associations that belong to or could
belong to any of the other ICANN constituencies are not excluded from BC
