[Gnso-epdp-team] Proposed Agenda - EPDP Phase 2A Meeting #09

Hi All,


As part of agenda item 3.C tomorrow, please find attached an instrument that the leadership team will present with hopes of fostering further dialogue about possible solutions in regards to distinguishing between legal vs. natural for domain name registrations. In short, this is an alternative to what slide 6 of the Jamboard attempted to accomplish. The approach is a deeper-dive or “what if” brain-storming exercise that takes into consideration prior consensus recommendations from Phases 1 & 2.


Note, we will only introduce this during tomorrow’s call and defer substantive input and discussion leading up to when the plenary meets on 11 March 2021. This should help to continue deliberations within the plenary while the EPDP awaits the completion the Legal Committee work and subsequent feedback from outside counsel. 


Thank you.
