    Awesome to see your support on FREE Change Of Registrant.

    Let's have the auDA Policy Review Panel make the required policy update suggestions now formally and auDA Board / auDA / Afilias etc can make it happen 1st July 2018 without further delays.

    Everyone wins.

    typo "flat" should be "flag". Raise it and put it on the suggestions. I think it may already be there but we need to make sure for 1st July 2018 go live.

    Technically COR is already free.

    Under the current Policy a Change of Registrant results in a new domain license being granted. The COR is free but the license is not.

    Question 13 of the PRP is that where a domain name licence is transferred between registrants, should the transferee receive the benefit of the remainder of the licence period. If this should be passed by the Board and the new policy reflect this then there will be no new license fee involved which means free COR.

    However as the registrars would have to process the paperwork it is still up to them to decide if a fee should be charged. It would be illegal for auDA to insist that this is free. Of course a registrar that does a free COR will probably get the business and possibly a new client.

    I would encourage everyone to say YES to question 13 of the issue paper. Of course policy change will not happen until the PRP makes it's recommendations to the Board and the Board votes on it. So don't expect free COR until then. (2019)

    COR is proposed to be FREE from 1st July 2018. Let's see if the auDA Board approves it... Some of the Board would not even know what it means perhaps..I hope the learn more and fast.
