Dear Becky, dear Co-Chairs and dear all,

For info: this is the full text of the GAC consensus input of December 21st on recommendation 5:

Changing aspects of ICANN's Mission. Commitments and Core Values

The GAC notes that legal advice is being sought by the CCWG to clarify the
practical effect of this Recommendation, and believes this is appropriate.

The GAC expects that any changes will not reduce the current role of the GAC in
providing advice on the activities of ICANN as they relate to concerns of
governments, particularly matters where there may be an interaction between
ICANN's policies and various laws and international agreements or where they
may affect public policy issues (as provided in the current ByLaws). This includes
issues such as consumer protection, the respect for fundamental rights and
freedoms and law enforcement.

The GAC further expects that changes to ICANN's mission and core values should
not constrain the Board from accepting and implementing GAC advice. In
addition, ICANN's ability to enforce contractual obligations and act upon the
public policy advice of the GAC should not be inadvertently impacted.


And: what happened with the question to the lawyers which we decided to formulate to the lawyers on this very issue last December? Could you please inform on the status of this question?

Is attached in DRAFT FORM.  Anything missing or wrong should be attributed to incompetence rather than conspiracy.  I am still working on questions in 1 section.  I will also shortly resend a variety of previously circulated resource documents.
