Charter for the Cross Community Working Group (CCWG) on Auction Proceeds
Overview: The new gTLD Program established auctions as a mechanism of last resort to resolve string contention (Competition between 2 or more applicants for TLDs).
Most string contention sets (approximately 90% of sets scheduled for auction) have been resolved through other means before reaching an auction conducted by ICANN through ICANN's authorized auction service provider, Power Auctions LLC. It was recognized from the outset that significant funds could accrue as a result of several auctions. As such, these auction proceeds have been reserved and earmarked until the Board authorizes a plan for the appropriate use of the funds. These proceeds are to be considered as an exceptional, one-time source of revenue.
The ICANN community has indicated that it wants to create a Cross-Community Working Group (CCWG) to develop a proposal(s) for eventual consideration by the ICANN Board on the mechanism that should be created to allocate the new gTLD Auction Proceeds. The proposed Charter for this CCWG, which is being developed by representatives of the different ICANN Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees as well as representatives from the ICANN Board, will be presented and discussed during this session.
Who should attend and why: Members and representatives from the different ICANN SO/ACs that may have an interest in serving as a Chartering Organization representative on the CCWG as well as any other individuals that may be interested in tracking the work of and/or participating in the CCWG, following the approval of the charter.
What to expect from this session: This session will be led by the Chair of the Drafting Team, Jonathan Robinson, with the support of the Vice-Chair, Alan Greenberg, as well as other members from the Drafting Team. The session will be opened by a brief overview of the proposed charter and identification of key issues requiring community input before finalization of the charter.
