I support the current proposed changes but feel that one item should be added for consideration to account for the situation where URS parties are able to negotiate the transfer of a disputed domain name after the conclusion of a URS case:


URS par. 10.2 should be revised to "...the domain name will not be able to be transferred, deleted or modified for the life of the registration unless both Complainant and Respondent mutually agree, in a written instrument signed by both parties, to a transfer of the domain name to Complainant. In such event, the domain name shall be unlocked solely for the purpose of completing the transfer and the suspension of the domain name shall be removed after the transfer has been completed."


Thank you for your time in considering this change.
