Item 6: Contention for domain names at gtld registries


- motion to initiate an issues report



Draft resolution



Whereas the high demand amongst registrars on behalf of their registrants to register specific domain names that become available for re-registration at the registry has lead to unforeseen strains on the ability of registries and registrars to manage their business efficiently,



Whereas this affects the service level that registrars can provide to their customers and the meaning of ICANN accredited as it applies to registrars,



Council resolves, to request the ICANN staff manager to write an issues report (as specified in annex A to the ICANN by-laws) on the "Problems caused by contention for domain names made available by a gTLD registry ", so that Council can subsequently decide if a policy development process would be appropriate.


Item 7: Transfer of domain name agreements between registrants (secondary market issues)


- see http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement-21sep04-1.htm

- seek information from ICANN staff on complaints raised by registrars or registrants, and other Internet users, and determine if appropriate to request an issues report



Item 8: Review of Transfers Policy
