Subject: Protection IGO/INGO Identifiers in All gTLDS


Dear Jonathan,


On behalf of the ICANN Board New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC),   I write to
follow up on our letter of 16 June 2014 regarding Protection of IGO/INGO
Identifiers in All gTLDs and the advice from the GAC in its Buenos Aires
Communiqué addressing the same topic. 


We understand that the GNSO has initiated a PDP on Curative Rights
Protections for IGO/INGOs.   This PDP is closely related to the issue of
IGO/INGO Identifiers and will have an impact on how the NGPC ultimately
addresses the GAC?s advice. We would be grateful for a briefing by the GNSO
on the progress of this PDP, including current status and projected timeline
for completion.


Finally, to the extent that it would be helpful, the NGPC would be pleased
to provide a briefing (oral or written) to provide greater clarity on the
GAC?s advice and expectations with respect to protections of IGO-INGO
Identifiers. If you have any specific questions, please send those as well
as they could help focus the briefing.


We appreciate the GNSO?s hard work in developing policy recommendations and
look forward to our continued discussions as we work together on this
matter. In the meantime, we note that the temporary protections afforded to
IGO acronyms remain in place while we continue our discussions. 


Best regards,

Cherine Chalaby

Chair, New gTLD Program Committee
