[bc-gnso] Sunrise vs IP Clearinghouse

Dear members,


I wanted to follow up on one of the issues that was discussed on the BC call
this past Monday because I think that there may be many others like myself
that need further information to understand this important debate.  I am
speaking of the difference between ‘sunrise periods’ and the new ‘IP
clearinghouse’ and would like to know the rationale behind NOT having both,
as well as why ICANN would push back on the GAC vis-à-vis the GAC’s wish to
continue the clearinghouse AFTER launch of a new TLD.


Can Mike Palage or others who are knowledgeable in this area please provide
us with some background and clarification as to why the BC wouldn’t want
both and continually?


Thank you in advance,




Ronald N. Andruff

Dear members



The following links provide recent correspondence from Peter Dengate Thrush,
Board Chair to Heather Dryden, GAC Chair

which the Chair has asked that I call to your attention.


The first link is the Board/staff response to the GAC on the scorecard and
will be very important to members trying to track

the status of discussions on the new gTLDs.

The second link is a very recent letter from Board Chair to GAC Chair on the
ATRT. Both are relevant to BC discussions during 

San Francisco meeting. 









I will try to keep down the extraordinary postings, but since these are
documents that I was asked about by a couple of members,

am posting them for your convenience.  


Stay tuned for a later posting with updates on the schedules for next week.
I am promised news from ICANN during the day on the schedule



We will have an informal BC gathering on Friday evening with informal drinks
for members there already, Saturday morning and evening if needed [brief
gatherings on Saturday]. 

and a more formalized updated schedule to be announced as noted, later


Marilyn Cade

BC Chair
