> - IANA IPR Assignment Agreement
> - IANA IPR License Agreement
> - IANA IPR Community Agreement
> Comments are due by the deadline of September 12, 2016 at 23:59 UTC.
> Comments should be submitted via email to

> Commenters should clearly reference to which of the agreement(s)

> Background
> 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
> <http://www.ianacg.org/icg-files/documents/IANA-transition-proposal-final.pdf>
> includes a requirement for certain IPR associated with IANA
> to be transferred from ICANN to an entity independent of the IANA
> functions operator. The IPR consists of trademarks and domain names.
> After discussion within the operational communities and the IETF
> Trust, the IETF Trust indicated that it would be willing to hold the
> IANA IPR.  The IETF Trust <http://trustee.ietf.org/> is a Virginia
> common law trust created in 2005. Among other things, the IETF Trust
> was created for the purpose of acquiring, holding, maintaining and
> licensing certain intellectual property for the advancement of the
> science and technology associated with the Internet and related
> technology. The IETF Trust agreed to hold the IANA IPR in the
> service of the affected Internet operational communities.
> Representatives from the names community, the numbers community, the
> protocol parameters community, the IETF Trust, and ICANN have
> drafted a set of agreements to effectuate the transfer of the IANA
> IPR from ICANN to the IETF Trust and to govern the relationships
> amongst the parties with respect to the IPR after the transfer.
> These agreements are:
> (1) IANA IPR Assignment Agreement. This agreement transfers the IPR
> from ICANN to the IETF Trust.
> (2) IANA IPR License Agreement. This agreement allows for the IANA
> functions operator to use the IPR. The document available for public
> comment is a basic form that will be used to generate three license
> agreements, one each for the names, numbers, and protocol parameters
> IANA services. Items highlighted in yellow will vary by agreement
> and will be completed once the License Agreement is split into
> three. In each case the licensee is ICANN, with the ability
> established for ICANN to sublicense to PTI.
> (3) IANA IPR Community Agreement. This agreement explains the rights
> and obligations of the IETF Trust and each operational community as
> regards the IPR.
> The IETF Trust, the operational communities, and ICANN hereby
> solicit feedback as to whether the draft agreements address the
> needs of the affected communities.
