FYI, saw this resolution passed on the reconsideration request for a registry service by .jobs.   Although the reconsideration request was denied, there is a reference in the BGC recommendation that asks the GNSO to consider a process to evaluate amendments that may have the effect of changing, or seeking to change, an sTLD Charter or stated purpose of a sponsored, restricted or community-based TLD.

The BGC report can be found at:  http://www.icann.org/en/committees/reconsideration/bgc-recommendation-09dec10-en.pdf.  The Resolution is below:

1.     Response to Reconsideration Request 10-2

Whereas, the BGC has reviewed and considered Reconsideration Request 10-2 submitted by the .JOBS Charter Compliance Coalition on 20 August 2010 (supplemented as posted at <http://www.icann.org/en/committees/board-governance/requests-for-reconsideration-en.htm>) concerning the Board's 5 August 2010 resolution approving Employ Media's .JOBS Phased Allocation Program.

Whereas, the BGC recommended that the Request be denied as unsupported because: (i) the Coalition's concerns regarding potential violations of the Charter in the implementation of the Phased Allocation Program is not a proper ground for reconsidering the Board's 5 August 2010 Action; and (ii) the Board did not fail to consider material information available at the time of the Action.

Whereas, the BGC recommended that the Board direct the President and CEO, and General Counsel and Secretary, to ensure that ICANN's Contractual Compliance Department closely monitor Employ Media's compliance with its Charter.

Whereas, the BGC recommended that the Board direct the CEO to create a briefing paper for the GNSO to consider on this matter, and for the GNSO to determine whether a policy development process should be commenced.

Whereas, the Reconsideration Request and the BGC's Recommendation has been posted on the ICANN website <http://www.icann.org/en/committees/board-governance/requests-for-reconsideration-en.htm>.

Resolved (2010.12.10.35), the Board adopts the Recommendation of the BGC on Reconsideration Request 10-2.
