Comment Period Extended on VeriSign Settlement Agreement
As part of ICANN's ongoing effort to support community dialogue and consultation regarding the VeriSign settlement agreement, the Board is extending the period for comment by requesting that all constituencies and advisory committees submit concise, actionable comments regarding the settlement's effect on their stakeholder community. Additionally, all constituencies and advisory committees have been invited to meet with the Board during ICANN's Vancouver meeting to discuss the settlement, and the Board also will listen to comments regarding the settlement offered during the Vancouver Public Forum.
The Board appreciates the comments and questions about the settlement posted in ICANN's public forum and raised in meetings with staff since the settlement was announced on 24 October. Additional Q & A's (questions and answers) will be posted on ICANN's website to address key issues raised and support further dialogue and consultation.
