The following is our formal statement on the IANA IPR.  We will post this
on our website ASAP.

On behalf of the ICANN Board of Directors

ICANN Statement re IANA Intellectual Property (IPR)

We support the ICG proposal and the underlying proposals from CWG, CRISP
and IANAPLAN.  The ICANN Board is focused on how to implement the IPR
component of the proposal.  The ICANN Board believes that for stability and
pragmatic operational reasons, the IANA Functions Operator must have
operational control over the IANA.ORG <http://iana.org/> domain.  During
the transition, ICANN is prepared to transfer full ownership of the
IANA-related trademarks to a neutral third party mutually agreed among the
operational communities with the understanding that ICANN, as the current
IANA Functions Operator, will be granted license to those trademarks and
ICANN will maintain operational control of the IANA.ORG
<http://iana.org/> domain
for as long as ICANN remains the IANA Functions Operator.  If the transfer
during the transition affects the timeline, we advise delay until after the
transition.  In that event ICANN is ready to hold the IPR as interim
measure but commits to transfer it within 120 days after the neutral third
party is identified by the operational communities.

We believe this is neutral and in the public interest. We look forward to
hearing anyone in the community.
