Hello Mary,


I would join in with the other members that have opposed the proposed
restriction on computer/phone usage, although I would be interested to learn
of the source of this suggestion. 


However, in attempting to keep an open mind, perhaps staff can take the
following recommendation back to staff/board.  I sometimes find it
frustrating during the public comment period to see all the board members
busily typing away at their computers, while not paying full attention to
the people at the mic. 


So perhaps the Board could lead by example in LA, and the entire Board could
leave their cell phones and computers turned off during the Thu public forum
and ICANN Board meeting.  If they find it to be a positive experience, then
perhaps the community could try it in the future.


Again just trying to approach with an open mind, and encouraging the ICANN
Board to lead by example.


Best regards,

WG F2F session on 10 Oct 2014


Dear WG members,


After consultation with the WG chairs, we would like to propose the
following as topics that we thought would benefit from further and more
in-depth discussion during the WG's upcoming face-to-face facilitated
session in Los Angeles on Friday 10 October.


Please reply (off list to me is fine) with your top two choices of preferred
topics - note that the last option also allows anyone to add a topic (based
on the group's Preliminary Conclusions and templates to date, and following
the Charter questions and agreed categories A-G) that is not specifically
listed below. Staff will compile a list of the top three topics selected by
the most WG members for discussion at the 10 October session.


1. What rights/responsibilities and obligations should be communicated by
P/P service providers to customers/registrants with regard to transfers and
renewals of domain name registrations? (from Category B Question 3 - see
attached report from the Transfers Issues sub-team (James and Kathy); the WG
Template including Preliminary Conclusions can be reviewed at


2. Further discussion on Category E - Relay (see WG Templates including
Preliminary Conclusions at https://community.icann.org/x/ihLRAg;
specifically, the three remaining "open questions", i.e.:


(a) Should providers be required to forward hard copy notices to
registrants/customers, on request, in cases where electronic communications
are known to be undeliverable?

(b) Should providers be permitted to charge a reasonable fee to forward
non-electronic communications that incur a cost to do so (this could include
monetary costs such as charges for registered mail and/or other resource
costs such as man-hours to review/strip out personal information from a

(c) If a provider chooses not to forward an allegation of illegal activity,
should there be an obligation for a provider to inform a requestor when the
provider does not forward its request?


3. Further discussion on Category F- Reveal (specific questions TBD
depending on extent of WG discussions between now and 10 October; see draft
WG Templates and current Preliminary Conclusions at



4. What aspects of the current temporary P/P specification in the 2013 RAA
should be retained and/or expanded for the accreditation program? What is
not in the current specification but should be? (See


5. What are the business practices that a P/P provider should disclose to
potential and actual customers, as part of the accreditation program?


6. Any other suggestions not already on this list?


We attach also a suggested proposed agenda for the day - including proposed
"ground rules" that have been found to have been extremely useful for
focusing discussions - and a document on Collaborative Reminders prepared by
our professional facilitators that similarly are intended to facilitate
useful constructive discussion and outcomes based on the objectives of our


On behalf of the WG chairs, we look forward to your feedback on the topics
for our LA discussion. Please indicate your choices as soon as possible and
in any event by this Friday 3 October. Thank you!
