Dear ALAC Colleagues,

See attached as FYI - Latest draft on new gTLD Public Interest Commitment
Dispute Resolution Procedure (PICDRP) sent by ICANN staff to Registries
recently and will be up for discussion during the Registry call on Thursday.

*What is interesting:*
1. Third parties cannot report/file PIC violation (the entity that
files/reports  has to demonstrate that it has been harmed).
2. No mention of fees for filing violation.  Also, unclear who will bear
the cost burden when panel is constituted to render judgement.  ICANN tends
to pass on this type of cost burden to the parties.
3. Burden is on the violation filer/"reporter" to make a thorough and
complete filing of objection and to make itself available for a
"conference" or consultation.  If filings are incomplete or the reporter
doesn't show for the conference, case is dropped.
4. Reporter can be designated as "Repeat Offender" based on track record,
which can be counted against it in future case filings and consideration.

Interesting reading.  The ALAC (and possibly the GAC) may want to make a
case (jointly or separately) for third party reporting when comments are
called for.  At the moment, this is a draft for consideration based on
discussions in Durban by the relevant parties, but it would be good to keep
an eye on its progress.

Best regards,
