    1. "JDRP"
    2. #1

    (For those who are not aware, JDRP is Jones Day Reavis and Pogue the ICANN law firm. Former home of Louis Touton ICANN's counsel, and the current home of Joe Sims. JDRP is ICANN's largest creditor, and, apparently, "Influencer Emeritus".

    1. The convoluted decision making process that is completely unaccountable and ignoring public input on a myriad of decisions: new gTLDs, UDRP, ccTLDs, Verisign agreement, elections, etc.

    2. The lack of international focus - we go to the other side of the world, and the discussions remain centered on Verisign or new gTLDs, while over 1/2 of the DNS (ccTLDs) continue to be ignored and disrespected.

    The title of the meeting is "Internet Searching and the Domain Name System: Technical Alternatives and Policy Implications".

    It seems to me that sans removal of intellectual property supremacy from the domain name space, well-meaning people will spend years trying to invent and tweak Technical Alternatives to satisfy an insatiable entity.

    I imagine this would be fine with the IPers, who can peer over their glasses periodically to see that we remain engrossed in our technical busy work, while they write, judge and jury more and more internet-usurping rules in their favor.

    Its IP Policy that is driving technical issues. Seen in that light, discussing technical alternatives becomes a meaningless exercise.

    Legislate IP rights back into some level of balance and perspective relative to the internet and other interests. Then discussion of technical innovation and policy implications, based on a level playing field, becomes useful.

    David (and Michael) if you are talking about 'key principles' for the study why do you want to talk about ICANN?

    The study is "Internet Searching and the Domain Name System: Technical Alternatives and Policy Implications", i.e. future not current.

    A danger with ICANN has always been that we are creating a massive political structure around a technology that is essentially out of date --at least in terms of what we ask of it-- and the political investment many are making in ICANN risks locking that technology in place. So talk about how policy should not drive the future of the Internet's naming addressing system, invite all the IP lawyers (the good and bad alike), and policy wonk's like Milton, to take a step back from the table and leave the main discussion to the technologists. I don't mean you leave the room (or the study), advise what the policy implications of their technical discussion might be, but don't let policy and politics lead the debate.

    Thanks,

    Adam
