This is to be the subject of a discussion at the next PAB meeting on 9 May. Acorn members should read the paper which has been posted today on the Nominet website. Author of the report is ***** Taylor of Nominet and she says her report has been produced 'at a PAB member's request' although she does not name that member. The report finishes with the following questions: 1. "One question is the role of these "professional registrants" in the community. Do they hurt "user registrants" and their ability to receive domain names that they would like? Another question is whether registrars should be limited in their ability to participate in this business." (Source http://www.icannwiki.org/Domain_Parking) 2. What should be the scope of the policy debate as it relates to .uk? 3. What issues are relevant to our discussions? 4. How should we structure the debate? For example, would it be helpful to have presentation(s) on dropcatching, domaining and the secondary market? If so, from whom? 5. Are there any other issues we should discuss? The report can be read here http://www.nominet.org.uk/digitalAssets/18138_Domaining_May_07.pdf NB: Not sure why the forum has asterixed the Nominet employees name - but it is shown on the report.
