Dear all,

The proposed agenda for the next Working Group Members’ call on 18 January 2017 is as follows:

1.       Roll call (via Adobe Connect and phone bridge only); updates to Statements of Interest

2.       Overview and discussion of TMCH Charter questions, Category 1: Education (see further below)

3.       [if time permits] Continue review of registry operator responses to data gathering request

4.       Next steps/next meeting

For Agenda Item #2, the agreed Charter questions are:

1.            Is the TMCH clearly communicating: (i) the criteria it applies when determining whether or not to accept marks for entry into the TMCH; (ii) options for rights-holders when their submissions are rejected; and (iii) options for third parties who may have challenges to or questions about recordals in the TMCH?

2.            Should the TMCH be responsible for educating rights-holders, domain name registrants and potential registrants about the services it provides? If so, how? If the TMCH is not to be responsible, who should be?

3.            What information on the following aspects of the operation of the TMCH is available and where can it be found?
(a)           TMCH services;
(b)           Contractual relationships between the TMCH providers and private parties; and
(c)           With whom does the TMCH share data and for what purposes?

Additional Notes on Agenda Item #2:

·         You can find the full list of final TMCH Charter questions and their categories here: https://community.icann.org/x/2CWAAw.

·         Staff has also compiled a wiki page containing background information, operational requirements and other relevant materials on the TMCH: https://community.icann.org/x/0AusAw.

For Agenda Item #3, please refer to the compilation of responses received so far from 3 registry operators (attached for recirculation; a copy can also be downloaded from https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/61606228/Registry%20Responses%20to%20TMCH%20Data%20Sub%20Team%20-%2013%20Dec.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1484721921011&api=v2).

Please note that the co-chairs and staff are working on getting the same questions out in a survey format, to see if additional responses may be forthcoming from other registry operators.

Thanks and cheers
