Dear all,

further to discussions about the Public Interest, please be so kind to
find a response from the Chair of the ICANN Board to the Chair of the
GNSO concerning a query about Exclusive Registry Access for gTLD Strings
Representing Generic Terms.
As a reminder, when the ALAC discussed the Public Interest with the
ICANN Board at the Marrakech meeting, Bruce Tonkin, Board member,
responded with a vision of the Public Interest mission of ICANN that was
purely technical in terms of making sure Domain Names resolved to the
proper IP addresses. During the ALT meeting with the ICANN Board Chair,
the ICANN Board Chair responded that this was not quite correct and
provided some language that broadened the use of the term "The Public
Interest" which was more aligned to the ALAC's view that all actions
that ICANN took needed to take into account the Public Interest. (I'll
have to read the transcripts back for the exact wording)

In the attached letter, the Chair of the ICANN Board quotes Paragraph 3
of the Articles of Incorporation - so that's a very technical baseline.
He then explains the current status of information collection from the
ICANN research on the global public interest framework. But nothing more
so far.

I would like to take this up with the Public Interest working group -
but would appreciate your feedback first.

Kindest regards,

Olivier
