Kristina, et.al.:

Thanks for this. As so often happens with oral statements, they can be a little 
difficult to interpret so I hope I am answering the correct question.

It is planned that ICANN will include amendments to the upcoming version 
Guidebook to address both the topics of trademark protection and the potential 
for malicious conduct. Before the Sydney meeting, it was pointed out that a 
third version of the Guidebook was not published at that time because 
discussions on these issues had not reached a point where proposals in the 
Guidebook could be made and it was thought that the next version of the 
Guidebook should tentatively address those issues.

In the case of Trademark protections, the changes would be based upon solutions 
proposed by the IRT and others, the public comment forum on the IRT report, the 
public sessions on trademark protections in Sydney, London and New York, and 
other discussions that continue to occur. The malicious conduct solutions are 
proposed out of the issues raised in reports by the APWG, RISG, FIRST, BITS and 
others. Those groups and others are being solicited to help develop possible 
solutions to mitigate the issues raised in the earlier reports.

There will also be conclusions about economic studies and root zone scaling but 
it is not known whether the conclusions drawn in those areas will affect the 
Guidebook text. Remember, of course, the draft Guidebooks are proposals for 
discussion and can be (and generally are) amended in some way.

I hope this is helpful and answers the question you posed.

I just listened to the recording of the 23 July Council meeting.  Early in the 
meeting there was some reference to the next draft of the DAG.  In response to 
a question from Tony Harris, Avri said "I do not believe that [there] any steps 
dealing with overarching issues that are blocking factors for publication of 
the next DAG and that [solutions/proposals for them] will be included to the 
extent staff decides to include them."  (39:20).

Would you please advise if this characterization is correct?  My understanding 
was somewhat different.

Many thanks.
