Dear Cherine,


Thank-you for this follow-up.  We have worked, together with ICANN Staff, to
provide the briefing note requested. I am pleased to provide it as an
attachment to this email.


I do think it will be very helpful for the Council to obtain greater clarity
on the expectations with respect to the IGO-INGO identifiers and will
attempt to provide specific questions.

We should consider two possible options; 

(a) a written briefing ahead of the forthcoming Council meeting on September
4th at 15h00 UTC


(b) an oral briefing and question and answer session at that same meeting.


We will discuss the options within the Council and revert to you with any
specific questions as well as a specific request for (a) OR (b) above as
soon as possible.


Best wishes,







Jonathan Robinson

Subject: Protection IGO/INGO Identifiers in All gTLDS


Dear Jonathan,


On behalf of the ICANN Board New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC),   I write to
follow up on our letter of 16 June 2014 regarding Protection of IGO/INGO
Identifiers in All gTLDs and the advice from the GAC in its Buenos Aires
Communiqué addressing the same topic. 


We understand that the GNSO has initiated a PDP on Curative Rights
Protections for IGO/INGOs.   This PDP is closely related to the issue of
IGO/INGO Identifiers and will have an impact on how the NGPC ultimately
addresses the GAC’s advice. We would be grateful for a briefing by the GNSO
on the progress of this PDP, including current status and projected timeline
for completion.


Finally, to the extent that it would be helpful, the NGPC would be pleased
to provide a briefing (oral or written) to provide greater clarity on the
GAC’s advice and expectations with respect to protections of IGO-INGO
Identifiers. If you have any specific questions, please send those as well
as they could help focus the briefing.


We appreciate the GNSO’s hard work in developing policy recommendations and
look forward to our continued discussions as we work together on this
matter. In the meantime, we note that the temporary protections afforded to
IGO acronyms remain in place while we continue our discussions. 


Best regards,

Cherine Chalaby

Chair, New gTLD Program Committee
