Hi all,

We just had our CCWP HR call, it was a bit less populated than normally.
I would like stimulate everyone who has volunteered for work in
subgroups to conribute to the work or let the group know if you have
less time so that people at least know you;re not available.

Together we can make this happen, don't leave your colleagues hanging :)

Here a short overview:

- Subgroup 1.
Has been doing mapping on cases. Is waiting for some further input for
the table. Is lacking a good graphic designer. Niels will put Marilia in
contact with Datakind for a graphic designer.

- Subgroup 2.
Identified a list of 11 possible topics but have identified four cases
on which they'll work the coming time:
1. Preliminary Issue Report on a GNSO Policy Development Process to
Review All Rights Protection Mechanisms in All gTLDs
comment for Prelim Issue Report is closed, but PDP continues.This will
affect UDRP, Rapid Suspension procedure and otherrights-protection
measures for the gTLDs.

2. Geographic Regions Review Working Group
comment period ongoing. Issues of substantive v. formal
representation/inclusiveness, of proportional representation based
on(for ex) number of Internet users across the continents.

3. Name Collisions Management Framework: The framework does not set out
a process to hear parties with colliding names, but only authorises
registries to undertake controlled interruption

4. UDRP: In Clause 4(a) on Mandatory Administrative Proceedings for
Applicable Disputes, the scope of applicable disputes is limited to
trademark-related disputes. Issues surrounding freedom of expression,
privacy, community interests in a domain name, geographical interests
indomain names, etc. are not addressed.

Please also see Vidushi's update to this list.

Subgroup 3.
Will be working on a template for a human rights impact assessment. A
draft outline for the work can be found attached.

Subgroup 4.
is mapping the issues that are relevant from a HR standpoint in the GNSO
working group charter on new gTLD subsequent procedures. The group is
choosing topics of interest and getting prepared for the upcoming call
for volunteers to be issued by GNSO staff soon.

Subgroup 5.
GNSO WG on WHOIS has started, more info here:
https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2016-01-04-en . This SG will
come back soon with more inputs and information

Operational issues:
- Joint session with GAC WG on Human Rights and International Law as
been requested
- Public session for CCWP HR has been requested as well as a working
session for ICANN meeting in Marakesh.

Extra: RPM
The GNSO will likely start a Policy Development Process (PDP) to review
all Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) in all gTLDs. The PDP will be
two-phased, starting with a review of RPMs in the new gTLDs and, in a
subsequent, second phase, review the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy

All the best,


Niels ten Oever
Head of Digital
