    Esther Dyson's Stooge Susan Crawford FRUSTRATED
    by Anonymous on Friday July 27 2007, @05:15AM (#16964)
    Esther Dyson's Stooge Susan Crawford FRUSTRATED ...she has no levers to pull...

    "It's frustrating. Someone said to me today, "Why don't we just have a few days of riots?" I can't imagine Americans rioting over communications policy, and neither can you. The Commission wouldn't be moved by riots - neither would the Congress. Google is right that the "foreclosure value" to the incumbents of these licenses isn't the same as their market value, and so the incumbents will spend whatever it takes to block new entrants. The people who want things to change don't have any levers to pull at the moment.

    But there can always be lawsuits."

    How many subpoenas*** will Esther Dyson and her
    stooges be served in Los Angeles in October ?

    Will Vint Cerf show up at the Los Angeles
    ICANN meeting ? Will he be convienantly "under
    the weather" ?

    Where did the CEO of Verisign disappear to ?
    [Don't ask]

    ***A subpoena is "a command to appear at a certain time and place to give testimony upon a certain matter."[1] The term is from the Middle English suppena and the Latin phrase sub poena meaning "under penalty."[2] The term may also be spelled "subpena."[3]

    A subpoena is used to compel the testimony of witnesses in a trial or other adversarial proceeding. Subpoenas are issued by the clerk of the court (see below) in the name of the judge presiding over the case in which the witness is to testify. (Additionally, court rules often permit lawyers to issue subpoenas themselves in their capacity as officers of the court.) Typically subpoenas are issued "in blank" and it is the responsibility of the lawyer representing the plaintiff or defendant on whose behalf the testimony is to be given to serve the subpoena on the witness.
