GNSO Council Report to the ICANN Board
ICANN is posting - for information - the GNSO report to the ICANN Board (PDF) on the GNSO's 'Recommendation for a Procedure for Handling Conflicts between a Registrar/Registry's Legal Obligations under Privacy Laws and their Contractual Obligations to ICANN'. The policy recommendation was developed by the Whois Task Force of the GNSO and approved by a supermajority vote by the GNSO Council. The Whois Task Force also developed a set of advice to ICANN staff to guide the development of the procedure. If the policy recommendation is approved by the Board, the Board will direct ICANN staff to develop, with the GNSO Council, a procedure which would handle any future conflicts in this area.
