ICANN is gathering responses to the proposed renewal of .NET registry contract.
Attached is a discussion draft for BC response prepared by Elisa Cooper  (with edits by Mikey O'Connor and Steve DelBianco)

On our 21-April BC member call, we discussed our approach for this comment, and there was universal support to request Verisign to have a "Thick WHOIS" service in .NET
Elise and Mikey added two additional requests based on new gTLD registry contract requirements:
 - Add TM Claims Service once the TM Clearinghouse is operating.
 - Add URS  (Uniform Rapid Suspension)
ICANN's Comment period closes 10-May.    Our member call on 21-Apr was 21 days before deadline, and today's draft is circulated 8 days before deadline.
We can submit this response later if members feel they need the entire 14-day review and discussion period.
Please review and post your suggestions/edits as soon as possible.   If there are no disagreements noted by 10-May, this response will be adopted without a voting period, and posted to ICANN.

Thanks again to Elisa Cooper and Mikey O'Connor for drafting this comment.
