Dear Council Members,

Ahead of the complete minutes, please find the resolutions that were
passed by the GNSO Council teleconference on Tuesday 20 November 2007.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
Kind regards,

Resolution 1

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 drafting and expects
to distribute not later than 28 November a revised proposed draft
dispute resolution procedure,

Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Council postpones until its 20
December meeting the vote on whether to initiate a policy development

views on the issue. Each such representative shall be asked to submit a 
Constituency Statement to the Staff Manager within thirty-five (35) 
calendar days after initiation of the PDP.

     b. The Council may also pursue other options that it deems 
appropriate to assist in the PDP, including appointing a particular
