For 14 day comment
I have been asked by the new VP policy coordination Steve DelBianco to act as
rapporteur for the issue of Expressions of Interest in the context of the new
gTLDS process.
I attach a proposed draft for the Constituency. Its argumentation and consequent
conclusion is based on the submissions of Bc members in their individual
capacity to the public comments process. These comment were significant in their
commonality. In short all commentators believed that:
- the EOI is a poor substitute for data gathering and an economic study
- the EOI is bad business practice as it requires investors to invest in
ignorance of issues that ICANN is obliged to solve.
Comments, improvements are most welcome ideally by e-mail bullet points
referencing the line numbers rather than Word tracked changes.
This makes the job of the poor rapporteur much easier !
