proposal and the underlying proposals from CWG, CRISP and IANAPLAN.&nbsp; The ICANN Board is focused on how to implement
the IPR component of the proposal.&nbsp; The
ICANN Board believes that for stability and pragmatic operational reasons, the
IANA Functions Operator must have operational control over the&nbsp;<a href="http://iana.org/" target="_blank"><span style="color:windowtext;text-decoration:none">IANA.ORG</span></a>&nbsp;domain.&nbsp; 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&nbsp;<a href="http://iana.org/" target="_blank"><span style="color:windowtext;text-decoration:none">IANA.ORG</span></a>&nbsp;domain for
as long as ICANN remains the IANA Functions Operator.&nbsp; If the transfer during the transition affects
the timeline, we advise delay until after the transition.&nbsp; 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.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:18.0pt">We believe this is
neutral and in the public interest. We look forward to hearing anyone in the
community.<u></u><u></u></span></p>
