Dear All,

The ALAC has requested the RALOs to provide input on the Cross Community Working Group report on GNSO gTLD Recommendation number 6. Recommendation 6 states that:

Strings must not be contrary to generally accepted legal norms relating to morality and public order that are recognized under international principles of law.

The Report includes recommendations to improve the proposed implementation of Recommendation No. 6, related to procedures for addressing objectionable strings, while protecting internationally recognized freedom of expression rights. The  public comment period on the Rec 6 report will remain open until 22 October 2010.

Evan Leibovitch provided a draft document on Recommendation 6 on behalf of the At-Large community. Evan’s document, including comments from other community members is available under:

In addition to that, we will set up a community call on Recommendation 6 report with Evan Leibovitch next week to discuss the At-Large response. You will shortly receive a Doodle with suggested time slots.
