Thanks for keeping on top of these. 


We ran a CWG call in the middle of the night for Greg so I'll leave a little time for him to respond in any more detail to your points below.


But, I'll provide my understanding in line in red below.

I am re-reading my message of 22 June 2016, archived at < <https://www.nro.net/pipermail/iana-ipr/2016-June/000145.html> https://www.nro.net/pipermail/iana-ipr/2016-June/000145.html>.


1. Confirm that the IETF Trust is a suitable party to hold the IPR, without any changes to the Trust’s founding documents.


I believe that we are waiting for the names community to discuss that with Sidley.


What progress has been made?



We have a table of open issues with Sidley.

We will discuss further with Sidley tomorrow

We will all discuss together on our call next week.


2. How many IPR license agreements?


I believe that the idea of three separate licences for the three parts of the IANA functions is generally accepted, and it has been incorporated into the draft agreements posted on 7 July < <https://www.nro.net/pipermail/iana-ipr/2016-July/000180.html> https://www.nro.net/pipermail/iana-ipr/2016-July/000180.html>.


I propose to mark this question as settled.




3. Should IPR licenses automatically terminate when IANA service providers are changed?


I believe that the provisions in paragraph 3.2.c of the draft community agreement covers this:  "The CCG co-chair representing an Operational Community shall have the right to instruct the IETF Trust to terminate the License Agreement with then-current IANA Operator with respect to such Operational Community’s designated IANA Service.”


I propose to mark this question as settled.




4. How many community agreements?


I propose to mark this question as settled, withj one community agreement.




5. Who takes the lead in drafting?


The IETF Trust has already drafted the community agreement and the licence agreement.  I haven’t seen a draft of the agreement for transfer of the ipr from ICANN to the Trust.


Sidley has been passed copies of these and are reviewing in order to provide comment / further development.

CWG Client Committee will discuss with Sidley tomorrow.
