RE: [nc-whois] Final Report -- another draft.

Dear colleagues

I've just spoken to Louis Touton, General Counsel, and will send an invitation to ICANN staff
shortly. He accepts our invitation, noting that ICANN will welcome the opportunity to talk to the TF about the recommendations which relate to ICANN actions.  I also asked him and will document the request via email, what the 
responsibilities of the registrars are related to accuracy. We also discussed the EC communication, and I've verified that the submission has been undertaken with consultation with other groups in the Commission. 

I will follow up to ascertain how to proceed in a useful, positive, dialogue and Q and A on that front. 

Thanks, Thomas. Great progress.

Subject: [nc-whois] Final Report -- another draft.


This is a draft of what our final report may look like, following
the discussion on today's conference call.  The document consists of
3 chapters: Recommendations, Discussion of the Implementation
Committee's Report, and Comments Received in Response to the Policy

Chapter I.1 contains three (!!) consensus policies on the accuracy
of WHOIS data.  A and B are the old consensus policies as revised by
the implementation committee.  C is the complaint process as
suggested by the implementation committee, with the changes
suggested in Steve's draft.  (I've also added an introductory
sentence.) This includes, at this point of time, a reversal of the
15 days -> 30 days change proposed by the implementation committee,
in order to keep the various document synchronized.

Chapter I.2 contains two consensus policies on bulk access.  A is
the proposed change to, and the deletion of; B is
the may -> shall change in

Chapter I.3 contains "practical recommendations" on the accuracy of
WHOIS data.  This is the old chapter 3.1.I, with considerable
changes (marked by underlining and overstriking):

- The posting of registrar contact points on ICANN's web site is

- There's a new recommendation on how the 15 day period should be
  handled.  I have tried to capture Marilyn's proposed compromise.
  Please don't blame any details on her -- I've written that text.

- The old recommendation on the 15 day period is deleted.

- The old recommendation on not accepting unverified corrected data
  is deleted -- that's the new consensus policy I.C.

Chapter II will contain Steve's detailed discussion of the
Implementation Committee's report; I have not yet pasted his text
into the HTML version (and I'll only do that on the latest

Chapter III contains the comments; that was annex B of the previous

I have not included a verbatim copy of the policy report, but linked
to it as an "attachment" from the Table of Contents.

As an advance warning, please note that I MAY leave on Sunday for
the ICANN Studienkreis meeting in Berlin early next week.  If that
happens, I won't be able to work on the report between Sunday and

Good night,
