>Subject: Draft Statement on the "Strawman" Rights protection mechanisms
>As you are aware, the Business and Intellectual Property 
>Constituencies of the GNSO Commercial Stakeholder Group submitted a 
>request to ICANN during the Toronto meeting to make a number of 
>changes to the rights protection mechanism associated with new 
>gTLDs. Based on a number of a hoc meetings a "strawman" proposal was 
>developed and ICANN has put it out for public comment. More can be 
>found at https://community.icann.org/x/KYlEAg.
>This process has been extremely controversial, and there is 
>significant opposition to it within the GNSO (some arguably for very 
>good reasons).
>Evan and I were asked to draft a statement for the consideration and 
>possible approval of the ALAC and it can be found at 
>The comment period closes on 16 January, so please post any comments quickly.
>Evan is travelling at the moment, but his contributions were 
>substantive and the document has his support. We both believe that 
>it conforms well to positions previously taken by the ALAC.
>A copy is attached here for your convenience.
