At-Large issues related to new gTLD creation December Evan Leibovitch
Carried over from DAGv2 At-Large comments were made at the Summit Most issues in that report were not addressed Do we express concern about lack of consideration?
Untouched from DAG2 to DAG3 Price for applicants Especially for community applications that aren't using the TLD mainly for revenue production Punitive refund system for partial bids Why not a graduated pay by the stage system? The Morality and Public Order objection Nobody wants it, but everyone thinks we need one Can we propose an alternative (maybe together with GAC)? Maybe just a banned word list?
Untouched from DAG2 to DAG3 Categorizations Still just community and non-community Lack of further splits denies fast-tracking for non- controversial applications Differential pricing How many are optimal? Intellectual Property Indiginous peoples' Traditional Knowledge unacknowledged
Modified in DAG3, but still bad String confusion – there is still allowance for objections based meanings of strings Also similar meaning to trademarks Dispute Resolution Service Providers Parties should be allowed to choose their own mediator Independent Objector Fixed budget and an obligation to bear same costs as any other objector Will this limit how effective the IO can be?
Not yet dealt with Unregistered trademarks We didn't have a position before on common law marks, but this came up in debate over the IRT High Security Zone Verification Is it worth anything without WHOIS accuracy? They're looking for guidance on this, it seems Expressions of Interest Not now part of DAG, but could appear in DAG4
Not yet dealt with Trademark issues Alan and Olivier participating with GNSO We may still need to make our own comments Anything else?
