Original Public Comment: Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs
I would like to have more time to understand and consider the implications of this report, well beyond the standard 40 days. I note these issues have been discussed for many years, so I do not understand the urgency or the stealthiness behind this work. At first glance at least, it appears to disregard the output of a duly formed GNSO Working Group tasked with the same policy development, in which I participated. At minimum, I would have expected this EPDP team to have consulted with the members of that Working Group before publishing a report that varies so drastically with the prior output.
Summary of Submission
I would like to have more time to understand and consider the implications of this report.
