RE: [council] Agenda for ICANN Board Meeting, 21 April 2011

Does that mean existing Registries get to hand pick which clauses they want to 
take on from the new Agreements??

When the 2009 RAA was finalized, Registrars had the option of riding out the 
term of their existing RAA or signing on to the new (2009) RAA. They did not 
have the option of selecting those terms & conditions they wanted from each 
Agreement (existing RAA and 2009 RAA). I would expect to see similar treatment 
for Registries.

Hello Stéphane,

> Can you elaborate a little on what agenda item 15 will cover please?
>  15. Review of Vertical Integration for Existing gTLD Registry
> Operators

on 5 Nov 2010, the Board resolution related to vertical integration 
(http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-05nov10-en.htm) stated:

" 4.  ICANN will permit existing registry operators to transition to the new 
form of registry agreement, except that additional conditions may be necessary 
and appropriate to address particular circumstances of established registries."

Since then some existing registry operators have inquired about the process for 
removing cross-ownership provisions in their agreements.

So I would expect a discussion on next steps at the Board meeting.
