Subject:  [gnso-rpm-wg] Results of GNSO Council vote on our data request

> Dear all,
> As you know, the GNSO Council met yesterday after our Working Group call to
> discuss and vote on the data request we submitted to them. Staff is pleased to
> inform you that the Council approved the request, following an extensive
> discussion of the cost, budget and resource estimate as well as the objectives
> and nature of the data to be collected. The Council resolution is appended
> below ­ you may wish to note that an added Resolved clause was inserted to the
> text of the original motion that was submitted; we have highlighted the new
> addition in yellow.
> Staff will now work with our co-chairs to determine how we may best fulfill
> the Council¹s directions, including following the next step in the process
> which is submission of the request to ICANN Organization for budget work and
> approval. 
> As Kathy and Phil were both on the Council call and participated actively in
> the Council¹s discussions, they may well have additional thoughts and
> information for everyone.
> Council Resolution 20170920-1: GNSO Council Approval of Data Collection
> Request from RPM Review PDP Working Group
> * Submitted by Heather Forrest
> * Seconded by James Bladel, Wolf-Ulrich Knoben
> 1. In October 2015, the GNSO Council adopted all the consensus recommendations
> from the Data & Metrics for Policy Making (DMPM) Working Group and instructed
> ICANN staff to commence implementation of the recommendations
> (https://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions#20151021-1);
> 2. The Metrics Request Decision Tree and Working Group Metrics Request Form
> developed by the DMPM Working Group were consequently incorporated into the
> GNSO¹s Working Group Guidelines
> (https://gnso.icann.org/en/council/annex-1-gnso-wg-guidelines-01sep16-en.pdf);
> 3. The Working Group chartered by the GNSO Council to conduct the Policy
> Development Process (PDP) to review all Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) in
> All gTLDs has, after extensive deliberations, developed a list of data
> collection tasks that it believes are critical in order for it to fulfill its
> Charter (https://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/rpm-charter-15mar16-en.pdf);
> 4. As part of its chartered tasks, the PDP Working Group was urged to bear in
> mind that a fundamental underlying objective of its work is to ³create a
> framework for consistent and uniform reviews of these [RPMs] in the future²;
> 5. The Competition, Consumer Protection and Consumer Trust (CCT) Review Team
> convened under the ICANN Bylaws has noted the lack of, and need for, data in
> order to evaluate the effectiveness of the various RPMs that were created for
> ICANN¹s 2012 New gTLD Program round
> (https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/cct-rt-draft-report-07mar17-en.pd
> f), and
> 6. The PDP Working Group has developed and submitted a DMPM data request form,
> as required by the GNSO¹s Working Group Guidelines, to the GNSO Council for
> its approval on 16 September 2017
> (https://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/rpm-sunrise-trademark-claims-07sep17-en.pdf)
> 1. The GNSO Council approves the DMPM request as submitted by the Review of
> All RPMs in All gTLDs PDP Working Group.
> 2. The GNSO Council instructs the leadership of the RPM PDP to work with ICANN
> staff and any outside experts to structure the data request in such a way that
> the value and relevance of the data is maximised.
> 3. The GNSO Council directs ICANN policy staff to forward the DMPM request to
> the appropriate department of ICANN Organization for the requisite budget and
> resource approvals, with a further request that the matter be considered and
> approved in as timely a fashion as practicable.
> 4. The GNSO Council requests a follow up report from the Review of All RPMs in
> All gTLDs PDP Working Group on the progress and outcomes of its DMPM request
> in time for the GNSO Council¹s meeting scheduled for 21 December 2017, and a
> regular written report thereafter, at intervals of not less frequently than
> monthly, followed by a detailed status report on the Working Group¹s view of
> the utility of the data collection exercise on the progress and timeline of
> Phase One of the PDP by ICANN61.
> Thanks and cheers
> Mary
