Attached is the updated version of the redlined document I sent before,
now incorporating new text. As before the bulk of the amendments is in
the section III, and a mention of the dependencies on IANA/IANA.ORG in
The full updated text in section III are:
Intellectual property rights (IPR) related to the provision of the IANA
services stay with the community
There are several intellectual properties related to the provision of
the IANA services whose status should be clarified as part of the
transition. Namely, the "IANA" trademark, the "IANA.ORG" domain name,
and public databases related to the performance of the IANA function.
It is important that through the stewardship transition the IPR status
of the registries is clear and ensures free unlimited access to the
public registry data. It is the expectation of the RIR communities that
the public number resource registries are in the public domain. It is
also the expectation of the RIR communities that non-public information
related to the IANA number resource registries and corresponding
services, including the provision of reverse DNS delegation in
IN-ADDR.ARPA and IP6.ARPA, is managed by the IANA operator and will be
transferred to its successor(s) along with relevant rights. It is the
preference of the RIR communities that all relevant parties acknowledge
that fact as part of the transition.
With regards to the IANA trademark and the iana.org domain it is the
expectation of the RIR communities that both are associated with the
IANA function and not with a particular IANA functions operator.
Identifying an organisation, not associated with an IANA operator, that
hold these assets permanently will facilitate a smooth transition should
another operator (or operators) be selected at some point in the future.
It is the preference of the RIR communities that the IANA trademark and
the IANA.ORG domain name be transferred to an entity independent of the
IANA functions operator that will ensure these assets are used
purposefully in a non-discriminatory manner for the benefit of all
operational communities. From the RIR communities' perspective, the IETF
Trust would be an acceptable candidate for this role.
The transfer of the IANA trademark and iana.org domain to the IETF Trust
will require additional coordination with the other affected communities
of the IANA functions, namely protocol parameters and names.
