ALAC Statement on the Preliminary Issue Report on the Current State of the UDRP
The attached ALAC statement [PDF, 181 KB] was initially composed by José Arce, a member of the Latin American and Caribbean Islands Regional At-Large Organization (LACRALO), after discussion of the topic within LACRALO. This draft, along with an English translation, was posted on a wiki workspace on 12 July 2011. Eric Brunner-Williams, an individual member of the North American Regional At-Large Organization (NARALO), composed an alternative, independent draft in English, after discussion of the topic among members of the ALAC and all five Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) in Singapore. This alternative draft was posted on the same wiki workspace on 14 July 2011.
On 15 July, At-Large Staff sent a four-day call for comments on both drafts to all At-Large members (using the ALAC-Announce mailing list).
On 16 July, the ALAC requested a 14-day extension of the public comment period on this subject and was granted an extension through 22 July 2011.
On 20 July, ALAC Chair Olivier Crépin-Leblond created the final version of this Statement by combining the two original drafts and the comments received by At-Large members.
On 21 July, the ALAC Chair requested that Staff open a five-day ALAC ratification vote on this statement, and the statement was submitted to Margie Milam (Staff person responsible for the public comment period).
