Dear Leslie,

During its Dec 15, 2011 teleconference, the GNSO Council discussed the issue referenced above.

The Council approved that discussion continue on the topic of cross-TLD registration scam and domain kiting following the SSAC's response (http://gnso.icann.org/correspondence/gnso-council-chair-to-faltstrom-10oct11-en.pdf) with the ccNSO to discuss whether there are any steps that could be taken or considered jointly.

The GNSO Council and the ccNSO Council had some initial discussions on this topic at its meeting in Dakar and as this is an issue that also affects ccTLDs there might be common approaches to be explored. As noted, such approaches might involve improved communication / education in relation to this issue as it is not clear at this stage that this issue could be addressed through policy development.

I am therefore contacting you, as Chair of the ccNSO, to enquire whether there might be some interest in having a joint discussion on this matter.

Kind regards,

Stéphane Van Gelder
Directeur Général / General manager
INDOM Group NBT France
Head of Domain Operations
