Dear All,

If there is a more detailed agenda for tonight’s call, could you please send that to us?  We’d like to make sure we have the right Sidley lawyers on the call (and not more than is needed).

In terms of Sidley’s team and our roles, please see below:

Holly Gregory – coordinating partner; should be included on all call invitations

Holly Gregory/Rebecca Grapsas – CCWG-Accountability; include on calls that relate to ICANN governance

Sharon Flanagan/Rebecca Grapsas/Amy Greeley – ICANN governance as it relates to CWG’s work; PTI governance (articles, bylaws, governance documents); include on all CWG calls (not all of us will join)

Josh Hofheimer/Yael Resnick – IPR and all Contracts; include on calls on these topics

Best regards,

Thank-you Sharon,

Lise and I have discussed the likely way in which we expect this to evolve but not, as yet, had the opportunity to discuss with the full CWG Group or Client Committee.

We anticipate that the call today (19th) will be more of a staff briefing indicating the approach taken to the work and so it will form a common background or base for CWG members and Sidley.

We are conscious that the role of the CWG is not to intervene substantially on the agreements, save for if and when we believe that they are inconsistent with our proposal and/or in some way detrimental to the interests of the Naming community. It is with this in mind that we are reliant on Sidley to assist us in order to avoid the CWG having to analyse the agreements in detail.

On the 21st, we anticipate that Sidley will be able to provide the CWG with more substantial input on where, if at all, you have any concerns with currently available agreements and / or term sheets.
Whilst it is possible that some in the CWG may give the agreements full and thorough scrutiny, it is likely that many will appreciate being directed to areas (by Sidley) where there are specific concerns.

We do have a Client Committee meeting scheduled for Friday July 22nd at 14h00 UTC and we anticipate that this will be used to manage the legal work currently underway.
It will be useful to know who is assigned to which element of the CWG related work so that we can all be sure that the correct people are invited to and present at the relevant meetings.
We are ever mindful of appropriate use of resources and associated costs.

Jonathan & Lise

I’m available on July 19 and 21.  I’m not available on July 28.

Do we also have a client committee call on July 22 at 12pm UTC?

Dear Sharon and Josh,

The chairs have asked me to invite you to participate on the CWG-Stewardship calls on 21 July at 06:00 UTC and on 28 July at 14:00 UTC. I have forwarded you the invitations for these calls. Both of these calls will deal with the naming functions contract as well as the intercompany agreement, and the CWG-Stewardship will request Sidley’s assistance in preparing public comment responses to these documents.

We acknowledge that this is late notice, but we also wanted to extend the invitation for you to join the CWG-Stewardship call tomorrow (19 July) at 14:00 UTC. While you are not expected to comment or present, it may be helpful for you to attend and observe the call since ICANN staff will be doing an introduction to the contracts. In the case that you are available, I have forwarded the invite for that call to both of you as well. Attached is the email with the agenda and relevant documents for the call.

Thank you,

Grace Abuhamad
