Dear Stéphane & fellow councillors,


We have today discussed this motion during the course of the Registries SG


A concern was expressed and discussed in some detail about the reason for
delay and directly linking a PDP process (on Thick WHOIS) with contractual
negotiations (on .com).

The PDP process and the contractual negotiation processes are essentially
distinct and separate processes.


Therefore, I’d like to propose a friendly amendment to modify the motion in
order to deal with this concern.


I have attached suggested re-wording of the motion to accommodate this


Best wishes,





From: owner-council at gnso.icann.org [mailto:owner-council at gnso.icann.org] On

Subject: [council] Motion to delay thick WHOIS PDP




You will remember that in CR the Council expressed a desire to delay the
thick whois PDP.


Since then, the Council leadership and Staff have discussed this at length.


First, it has been deemed necessary to have a formal motion to do this. Due
to the deadline for motions being today, I have asked that a motion to that
effect be prepared and I am submitting this today. I am doing this as Chair,
from an administrative point of view, to help see this process moved


Second, we've had extensive discussions on what voting threshold should be
used for this motion. In the end, we have ascertained that as there is no
specific reference to a PDP suspension process in the bylaws, the default
threshold should be used (see bylaws section 3.9:


Motion attached.
