Dear all,

This email is to follow up on (1) an outstanding Action Item for staff from the Working Group meeting on 16 August 2017; and (2) the scheduling of our sessions at ICANN60 in Abu Dhabi.

On (1):
Staff was requested to prepare and circulate a list, for members’ comments, of suggested domain name industry blogs and news sites that can be searched for coverage of issues relating to Sunrise and Premium Pricing, and the use of Premium Names and Reserved Names lists. We believe the following are the main industry sources (in alphabetical order):

  *   Circle ID: http://www.circleid.com/
  *   Domain Incite: http://domainincite.com/
  *   Domain Pulse: http://www.domainpulse.com/
  *   Domain Name Journal: http://www.dnjournal.com/
  *   Domain Name Wire: http://domainnamewire.com/
  *   Internet News: https://www.internetnews.me/
  *   The Domains: https://www.thedomains.com/

Please let us know if you have concerns or comments on the list. In addition, it was suggested that Working Group should consider whether to also add a list of blogs that cover domain issues of concerns to brand owners (one example that comes to mind is Trademarks and Brands Online: http://www.trademarksandbrandsonline.com/). Please comment if you have thoughts on this additional suggestion.

On (2):
Please find attached the most recent draft GNSO community schedule for the ICANN60 Public Meeting in Abu Dhabi, scheduled from 28 October – 3 November. In accordance with the session requests that staff put in following consultations with our co-chairs, this Working Group has been allotted a total of six hours of meeting time, divided as follows:

  *   Saturday 28 October: two 90-minute sessions starting at 15.15 local time
  *   Monday 30 October: a third 90-minute session starting at 15.15 local time
  *   Thursday 2 November: a fourth, and final, 90-minute session starting at 13.30 local time

Please note that, as with all ICANN Public Meetings, finding slots with minimal conflicts for as many participants as possible is not easy. Staff has worked closely with the GNSO Council leadership to try to ensure that there are no conflicts with major GNSO working sessions and the other PDP Working Groups, while minimizing conflicts with broader cross-community sessions that may be of interest to the GNSO community. This meeting will also be ICANN’s Annual General Meeting, and in accordance with the community-developed meeting strategy there will be two Public Forums, a whole day dedicated to community groups (generally called “Constituency Day”) and much of a day dedicated to discussing the work of the various GNSO policy groups (i.e. the GNSO Working Sessions on Sunday 29 October).

Please let us know if you have questions about the schedule. This is a draft schedule that is still subject to change, but we are hopeful that the four RPM sessions are more or less firm. As always, remote participation (e.g. Adobe Connect, phone bridge, transcriptions and recordings) will be available for those who will not be attending the meetings in person.

Thanks and cheers
