Good morning, Carlton and Alan:
It seems to me that there is conflicted reasoning in the GAC Communiqué
*"> - The GAC is questioning the need to have a PDP to protect the
RC/IOC names since in their mind, the international instruments and
national laws should be sufficient."*
*If:* "the international instruments and national laws should be
*Then:* Why the specific request for protection of these two entities
in the first place?
Best regards, Ron
