Intergovernmental Organization Dispute Resolution Process (IGO-DRP) 
developed by staff:

Motion that failed in LA
Whereas, the Council has previously requested and received both the 15 
June 2007 "GNSO Issues Report on Dispute Handling for IGO Names and 
and the 28 September 2007 "Staff Report on Draft IGO Domain Name Dispute 
Resolution Procedure;"

Whereas, the Council believes that further work on the draft IGO Domain 
Name Dispute Resolution Procedure is appropriate before voting on 
whether to initiate a policy development process on this issue; and

Whereas, the Intellectual Property Constituency is willing to lead a 
small ad hoc group to review and consider a proposed draft dispute 
resolution procedure,

Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Council authorizes the creation 
of a small ad hoc group of interested informed and representative 
stakeholders and members of the GAC to review, consider and propose as
appropriate revisions to the Draft IGO Domain Name Dispute Resolution 
Procedure set forth in the Staff Report, and instructs the ad hoc group 
to report to the Council with its recommendations not later than 15
February 2008.
