Dear Marc:

I share your concerns about the seriousness of this topic and I in fact
raised it during the ICANN Board call this past Monday and in an email to
the Board mailing list last evening. As Board member elected through the
GNSO I believe it is important to let council know that I am monitoring
their concerns, however, I believe it is most appropriate to allow staff to
give an update on this matter. I hope that either Paul or Kurt will be able
to do this during tomorrow's call.

I also support your recommendations about a proper and fully informed
discussion on this topic, as Article III, Section 6 of the ICANN Bylaws sets
forth specific guidance with regard to notice and comment on policy actions.

I look forward to seeing you and your fellow Council members in Cape Town.

Best regards,

Michael D. Palage

This is a pretty serious topic, I agree, as another elected rep. I do
not mind at all that we discuss this tomorrow. I would oppose though
any attempt to rush anything through tomorrow. Be it dismissing the
whole WIPO II request (which my constituency wouldn't mind as such) or
taking some position.  We need serious discussion about this topic,
which cannot be accomplished in one teleconference as such short
notice. I suggest we discuss WIPO II on this list before we make _any_
decision. Thanks.
