    Magaziner, attended Oxford University with Clinton

    But anyone using a domain name in a way becomes involved in a trademark system. A part of this was due to the people who took trademarks that didn't belong to them. Others have been cases of innocent infringement. We addressed that and you will hear much more about it later today. Our approach of a contract and a non-governmental system was fortunately endorsed by the US government on July 1st, 1997. President Clinton and Vice-President Gore announced the framework of global electronic commerce. We were gratified that the government recognized that an approach to the domain name system based on private enterprise and cooperation among private entities would be the basis for the creation of new generic top level domains. A senior counselor to President Clinton, Ira Magaziner, became very much involved with this procedure. And we have worked closely with Mr. Magaziner, who attended Oxford University with President Clinton which explains why he is so close to the President. We've also worked with the US Department of Commerce and with a number of other US agencies including the Federal Commerce Commission and again, it has been gratifying to us that almost without exception, the US government has taken the very firm position that it bow out of its involvement with the Internet. ...
    We are perfectly aware that the Policy Oversight Committee can no longer remain simply a creation of the Internet Society and IANA. We must have a broader base than what we have now and it must be acceptable to the governments of the world. And more importantly, it must be acceptable to the stake holders of the Internet, the Internet community, the users of the Internet, the trademark legal community and all the others. That, I think, gives you in a brief summary of the political issues that underlie our work. And as I said, we're fully aware that there are unsolved problems. We're not here to tell you that we have solutions to all the problems realized by the growth of the Internet. But, we think we have the best approach. I'll now turn this over to my colleague, David Crocker...
