B. Minutes from the last NC teleconference, 18 April 2000
C. Review of the Working Group B -- Famous Trade-Marks
Michael D.Palage, Working Co-Chair, was convened to join the
teleconference and give a brief summary of ten months of WG-B work,
July 1999 - May 2000, as well as outline the points of consensus and
disagreement. The WG-B grew up very large, more than 120 participants,
50% from the IPC, 20% dispersed over Constituencies. The group agreed
with 70% of yes that there should be safeguards on the trademark's
protection. Most of participant agreed that a creation of a trademark's
list would not be prudent at this time, but it does not preclude about
the future. Whatever protection to the trademarks, it should be
assorted to the nature of TLD. There should not be an exclusion of
trademark's names across all TLDs. The Registrars were concerned by a
speed of process, therefore to have a list. The Non-commercials were
critical about this proposition. Some proposals collected by the WG-B
could be explored more deeply in the future.
Michael Palage was requested to provide recommendations on working
procedures for the future, based on the WG-B experience (shall the WG
be open to a newcomers over such a long time, facing the same questions
asked over and over again, but also bringing a new ideas; how the
listserv should be improved to prevent discussions' diversion on the
public comments forum). The same request will be passed to Jonathan
Weinberg, Working Co-Chair of the WG-C. Both written documents will be
used by the WG-D.
The discussion followed on mandates as given to the Co-Chairs and term
of reference (whether it should be rather short or more precise).
The draft of Resolution to the ICANN Board, as amended by the Names
Council, was moved on by Roger Cochetti, and seconded by Kathryn
Kleiman. The Statement was approved by an unanimous vote (16 YES, 2
absents Dennis Jennings and Patricio Poblete)

recommendations on the DNSO Secretariat and Budget to the ICANN Board.
Such a document may include the NC observations and request for
resources. Andrew McLaghlin stressed out that the budget has already

Various comments were made by Erica Roberts, Ken Stubbs, Andrew
McLaughlin, Roger Cochetti, Theresa Swinehart and Elisabeth Porteneuve.
o The DNSO shall have sufficient resources and support and ability
to act independently from ICANN.
o The DNSO must be, and be seen as, a genuine multi-national
