    It's probably reserved for ISOC.

    Accreditation procedures

    Actually, the ALAC has not accredited the four pending applications from North America, mostly because of lack of participation to the related vote.

    This is a known issue with the way ICANN Bylaws on the matter are written. Even before this accident happened, the ALAC had already started to prepare a proposal for Bylaws amendment that would prevent these problems from happening. It is presently on the Board's agenda and we expect it to be approved in a few days, so that we can then reconsider the applications that did not make it to approval, including AmericaAtLarge's one.

    ICANN is International and Not Needed in the .USA

    ICANN is International and Not Needed in the .USA

    The same holds for the ITU. People in third-world
    countries may fund and depend on the ITU. That is
    not the case in the .USA. The .USA is the ONLY
    free-market telecom market on planet Earth. That
    is why people flock to the .USA to live, work,
    play and network.

    ICANN is International and Not Needed in the .USA

    No major player in the .USA telecom market pays
    any attention to ICANN. ICANN is part of Vinton
    Cerf and the ISOC's ticket into the Geneva ITU
    inner circle. That is their door-step into the
    third-world countries they are determined to
    dominate. As people can see, they certainly
    attract a long line of suckers to fund the ICANN
    road shows. Cerf is all about funding and making
    sure his closed society has funding and dominates
    forums THEY decide matter.

    In the .USA telecom market, Consumers decide
    what matters, and they decide with their
    collective free-market decisions. Vinton Cerf
    can not tolerate free-market decisions. He comes
    from the Jon Postel IANA dictator camp. Cerf and
    Postel went to high-school together, in Van Nuys
    California, .XXX Porn Capital of the world.

    ICANN is International and Not Needed in the .USA

    Major players in the .USA telecom market and
    even the U.S. Government are working on IMPROVING
    the .NET in the .USA and making it higher-speed
    and more secure. They are De-Peering from some
    of the third-world regions and from ISPs in the
    .USA that are not able to keep pace. ICANN and/or
    ARIN can not stop that. The major players just
    ignore them, as they build a better .NET without
    the need for ICANN or ARIN, or the ISOC. The .USA
    consumers of course benefit from higher-speeds
    and LOWER-costs. They have no interest in paying
    for ICANN's road shows.
