[registrars] Vote on dispute resolution policy

Dear registrars,

As you will see in the attached mail, the Names Council is voting on the
Workign Group A report concerning Chapeter C of the WIPO Final Report...

In clear: the NC has to decide whether to forward some policy recommendations

Tnbe recommendations, grossly summarised are:

1. Implement the WIPO reprot regading uniform DRP ASAP
2. DRP should be uniform accross all current gTLDs, even if differences
regarding future gTLDs could be considered
3 Uniformity refers to material rules and "substantive procedural" erules.,
Details in procedure should be open to differentation among differnet DRP
service providers (differnt arbittration insititueins, if you prefer, even if
it is not a completey cor¡rect correspondence). Multiple DRP Service providers
should be accredited by ICANN
4. DRP should confine rfor the moment being to cybersquatting and piracy, as
defined by the WIPO Report. After a test pèriod, this could be extended to
other areas.
5 WIPO to be asked to set a voluntary procedure for DR in case other than
cybersquatting and piracy.

I sitll don't know hwat happened in Wahsington regading the DRP seminar (any
report, pleae?) but only a couple of registrars have expressed so fart theri
preference for a non-uniform DRP.

In cae you don't raise hell during the next 24 hours, I will vote in favour of
these recommendations.
