    USA Goverment Relations Advance Look At Prepared Statements for ICANN Hearings
    posted by michael on Wednesday June 12 2002, @03:50AM

    The ITU's Robert Shaw has his own, very readable and interesting, Blog. And it has advance links to some of the prepared testimony for this afternoon's ICANN hearings: The GAO 's Internet Management: Limited Progress on Privatization Project Makes Outcome Uncertain; Stuart Lynn's bald-faced Testimony; Karl Auerbach's, Prepared Statement; and SnapNames Vice President and General Counsel Cameron Powell's Oral Statement.

    Update: VeriSign's Roger Cochetti's testimony.
    Update2: CDT's Alan Davidson's statement.
    Update3: NTIA's Nancy Victory's Statement.

    Sometimes, it's hard to believe this is the same ITU that not so very very long ago sniffed at normal e-mail addresses and had just one fax machine...

    I should like to translate Roger Cochetti's comments, for those who haven't the time to read them:

    Mr. Chairman: ICANN is going too far in being a regulator. They won't let us implement our Waiting List Service, which should make us scads of money. That's our only real complaint. ICANN needs reform, but the most reform it needs is to leave us alone so we can slowly regain our monopoly position. To hell and back with new TLDs, representation, and proper technical coordination. Just get ICANN off our back.

    I used to think the 'I' in ICANN stood for "International", but now I know it does not and yet it maintains it is supposed to authorise and police "Universal" Dispute Resolution Policy...

    ...So why is only the US Government allowed to examine it in this way?
