Notes/ Action Items


Please find below the action items from today’s EPDP call on 29 Nov 2021.

1) Jay/Paul to confirm the intent of the BC/IPC comment: Accordingly, one potential compromise alternative to exempting an IGO from the mandatory submission to a “Mutual Jurisdiction”, would be amending UDRP Rules Section 3(b)(xii) with an explicit caveat as follows: “State that Complainant, without prejudice to an IGO Complainant’s privileges and sovereign immunity, will submit, with respect to any challenges to a decision in the administrative proceeding canceling or transferring the domain name, to the jurisdiction of the courts in at least one specified Mutual Jurisdiction.”

Due date: 10 Dec 2021

2) IGOs (Brian) to respond on-list to ICA response quoting from Prof Swaine: "As a purely legal matter, it seems unlikely that the Mutual Jurisdiction provision, as it may be accepted by an IGO, establishes or occasions a violation of IGO immunity… [and] it may seem more appropriate to require an IGO to abide by a judicial process, given that it has elected to initiate UDRP proceedings, than it would be require a domain-name registrant to accept the IGO’s preferred alternative”

Due date: 10 Dec 2021

3) Brian to provide update to Rec #1 small team he received from UN colleagues regarding the use of "Permanent Observer Status" in context of Rec #1 intent.

Due date: 10 Dec 2021

4) Staff to update Rec #3 PCRT [COMPLETE]

Next meeting: 13 Dec 2021 @ 15:00 UTC

Preliminary agenda: Review Rec #1, Conclude on Rec #3 Action Items & PCRT, begin on Rec #4 PCRT
