Dear all,

Another personal view,

From an end-user perspective, the most important issue at stake here is end-user confusion, with potentially fatal consequenses,  in case off fraudulent use of an IGO acronym. A clear and rapid mechanism needs to be set up, at long last, to deal with such situations. Until Monday, it seemed that we were advancing towards a pragmatic solution that all parties could live with and that would recognize fundamental facts if life  like the status of intergovernmental organisations.

As a non-lawyer, I might not see all the fine points, but I wonder why a losing registrant would want to spend money and effort just in order to be told by a court that an IGO has immunity, instead of following the procedure outlined in the proposed Recommendation 2.  Nevertheless,  I hope that work continues to reconcile Jay’s bullet #3 (which I think refers to Option 3 for Resolution 5, something that unfortunately was rejected by the original IGO/INGO PDP Working Group) and our proposed Rec 2.   We can’t afford to kick the can down the road to yet another PDP.
