ICANN Counsel tells GNSO to bugger off

ICANN staff, at the request of the GNSO, have submitted a formal Issues Report on the proposed .com registry agreement. Notably, "Staff does not recommend the launch of a dedicated PDP on this matter as framed by the GNSO Council. "

Most interesting is the General Counsel's opinion:
The General Counsel’s opinion is that "the dot COM proposed agreement in relation to the various views that have been expressed by the constituencies" is not "properly within the scope of the ICANN policy process and within the scope of the GNSO.""

The Staff report identified the six general areas of concern as expressed by the GNSO constituencies:
1. Registry renewals

2. Contract terms of agreement vs. consensus policies
3. Prices for registry services
4. ICANN fees
5. Traffic data usage
6. Development and infrastructure investments
