Where do Registry Operators fit in the "new" GNSO? That is, those that perform
back end Registry Services for new gTLD Applicants (or Registries) and
potentially ccTLD Managers...
Are they able to form a Constituency under the Commercial Stakeholder Group?
Clearly they are not able to be under the "Contracted" Party House as they have
no contract with ICANN.
I note from the proposed BC charter;
In keeping with the selective membership criteria of other GNSO constituencies,
the Business Constituency represents the interests of a specific sector of
Internet users. The purpose of the Constituency is to represent the interests
of businesses using the Internet for, in its broad sense, electronic commerce
To avoid conflicts of interest, this typically excludes for-profit entities
whose primary relationship with ICANN is as a domain name service provider,
such as a registry or registrar, as well as from other groups whose interests
may not be aligned with business users.
