In response to the extensive community and Government input on the
definition of the purpose of WHOIS, the GNSO Council agrees to undertake
the following steps:
One: Each Council member that voted in favour of the definition will
provide a brief explanation of the reason for supporting the resolution
and their understanding of its meaning.
Two: the ICANN staff will provide a summary of the other interpretations
of the definition that have been expressed by the community and
Three: the Council will undertake a dialogue with the GAC and SSAC on
developing a broadly understandable definition of the purposes for which
the current data required in the RRA is collected.
Four: The GNSO Council requests that the WHOIS task force continue with
their work as specified in the terms of reference taking into account
the recent input that has been provided.
Five: The GNSO Council will take the final report from the WHOIS task
force that addresses all terms of reference, and the definition of
purpose of collecting data derived from the dialogue with the GAC and
SSAC, and consider improving the wording of the WHOIS service definition
so that it is broadly understandable.
The GNSO Council notes that the current definition is related to the
service that provides public access to some or all of the data
collected, and is not a definition of the purpose of the data itself.
