   Hello All:

   Here is where we stand with regard to the scheduled registrar/registry
   joint meeting in DC for next month.

   The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is holding a two day
   public workshop to combat cross-boarder on February 19th and 20th (Wed
   and Thu). Please see the following URL for a link to this event
   http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2002/12/crossborder.htm. I would personally
   recommend registrars to attend this event as this public/private
   sector workshop as on the 19th, representatives from the credit card
   industry will be in attendance to discuss credit fraud. As I have
   previously discussed with the list, credit card charge backs are a
   serious business concern in this industry. Registrar issues involving
   Whois and related issues will be the subject of a panel discussing
   during the second day of the workshop.

   I have confirmed with most of the major registries that they will be
   attending the joint meeting on Friday during which there will be a
   discussion/workshop on Whois, transfers and IDNs. I believe that face
   to face meetings and an exchange of ideas is critical to address these
   issues both now and into the future.

   What I now need from registrars is confirmation on who will be
   attending these events FTC and Registrar/Registry Joint Meeting. I
   need this information so that I can select the appropriate meeting
   facility on Friday. I have bids from two hotels in DC that will
   provide a block of rooms and accommodations. Based upon the number of
   attendees I may be able to get a better room rate. Therefore, please
   let me know ASAP if you will be attending and if you have reserved a
   room yet.
