Subject: Signatory to the Community Agreement

Dear Sidley,

As you are aware:

1.      A key issue for the CWG in dealing with the IANA IPR will be a decision on the signatory on behalf of the Names Community.

2.      Currently we have some potential options:

a.      ICANN as signatory (assuming ICANN is willing)

b.      The formation of an unincorporated entity (a to be defined)

c.      Other possibilities such as the Empowered Community

It will be helpful to the CWG to have some structured input on this, possibly in the form of a table, in order to inform and aid that decision.
Please can you provide such input and/or advice and indicate if this will be possible at the meeting of the CWG scheduled for tomorrow (18 August) @ 06h00 UTC.


(on behalf of the Client Committee)
