Call for Public Comment on IANA IPR Agreements

11 August 2016

Today, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Trust, the operational 
communities, and ICANN announced a call for public comment, soliciting 
feedback on draft agreements designed to address a requirement from the 
Proposal to Transition the Stewardship of the Internet Assigned Numbers 
Authority (IANA) Functions from the U.S. Commerce Department's National 
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to the Global 
Multistakeholder Community 
[PDF, 2.3 MB]. The Proposal required that the domain names that ICANN uses to 
perform the IANA functions and the IANA trademarks (the "IANA IPR") be 
transferred to an entity independent of the IANA Functions Operator, and held 
for the benefit of the entire community.

This call for public comment 
seeks community input on three agreements concerning the IANA IPR developed by 
the community to meet this requirement from the Proposal:

*	IANA IPR Assignment Agreement
*	IANA IPR License Agreement (model)
*	IANA IPR Community Agreement

The ICG web site is being used as a neutral site to host this call for public 
comment, but the agreements are not a product of the ICG. After public comment 
inputs are reviewed and considered, the agreements will be finalized. The 
agreements are expected to be signed upon successful completion of the IANA 
Stewardship Transition.

ICANN is a party to some of the agreements posted for comment:

*	The IANA IPR Assignment Agreement, through which ICANN will transfer the 
IANA IPR to the IETF Trust
*	Three IANA IPR License Agreements, through which the IETF Trust will license 
back to ICANN the rights to use that IANA IPR in the performance of the IANA 
functions. There will be three IANA IPR License Agreements, so that there is 
one representing each portion of the IANA functions (naming, numbering and 
protocol parameters). The Community Agreement sets out how the naming, 
numbering and protocol parameters communities will work together with the IETF 

Comments are due by 12 September 2016 at 23:59 UTC. Comments should be 
submitted via email to IANAIPRpubliccomment at ianacg.org. Commenters should 
clearly reference to which of the agreement(s) their comments apply. For more 
detailed information, please visit
