Re: [council] MOTION TO RECOMMEND PROTECTIONS IN THE FIRST ROUND OF NEW GTLDS FOR CERTAIN RED CROSS/RED CRESCENT (RCRC) AND INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) NAMES
To be clear, my support was on behalf of the ALAC and not solely my own. As I previously reported this was neither an easy nor unanimous decision for ALAC, but approval was given for the compromise position.
