Subject: [bc-gnso] For FINAL approval by 28-Oct: BC Comment on Accreditation of UDRP providers

Our rapporteur Phil Corwin has done a masterful job responding to edits and comments from several BC members over the past week.  Attached is Phil’s ‘final’ version.

According to our Charter, “ If no substantively opposing comments are received the position will be deemed approved.”

So please use the remaining 6 days in our review period to register any substantive opposition to the BC filing these comments with ICANN on 28-Oct.

Thanks again to Phil and to all the members who contributed to this effort.

This draft comment is being circulated today (14-Oct) so that BC members will have 14 days to review, revise, and consider approval before the ICANN deadline of 28-Oct-2010.

The attached comment was drafted by Phil Corwin and was polished for submission by Mike Rodenbaugh.  Phil’s original note is shown at the bottom of this email, and contains some contextual material that may be helpful in your consideration of this draft.

This draft comment is in response to ICANN’s proposal to recognize a new domain name dispute provider.   For background on this proposal, see below, or at http://icann.org/en/public-comment/#acdr-proposal

Explanation/Background: ICANN has received a proposal from the Arab Center for Domain Name Dispute Resolution (ACDR) to be recognized as one of the official dispute resolution providers under the UDRP. The proposal was submitted pursuant to the process specified at http://www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/provider-approval-process.htm.

The ACDR is jointly established by the Arab Intellectual Property Mediation and Arbitration Society (AIPMAS) and the Arab Society for Intellectual Property (ASIP), with headquarters in Amman, Jordan and additional offices in other Arab Countries. Both the AIPMAS (established in 1987) and ASIP promote the activities of the Arab Center of Mediation and Arbitration, established in 2003, active in resolving conflicts related to intellectual property through international arbitrators. If approved, the ACDR would be the first Approved UDRP Dispute Resolution Service Provider headquartered in an Arab state.

At its 5 August 2010 meeting, the Board approved staff’s recommendation to publish the ACDR proposal for a public comment for a period of not less than 30 days.

Upon completion of the public comment period, ICANN staff will analyze the comments received and evaluate further recommendations to the Board on proceeding with the ACDR proposal.
