    Why do people continue to try to place WIPO
    on some pedestal by calling WIPO "an agency
    of the United Nations" ?

    WIPO is a private company, just like ICANN, with
    no authority to do anything, except laugh all the
    way to the bank at the people who pay them
    for their scams.

    Americans need to stop sending their money
    to Swiss people who are setting themselves
    up as some sort of world arbitrator.

    The issue is not why the Swiss are so clever.

    The issue is why American lawyers are so gullible.

    What is it ? The opportunity to travel to Europe
    and be paid well and to dabble in international law?

    Why sell out Americans for that ?

    (Board Resolution 99.83, paragraphs 3-5.)

    2.4. Under the direction of ICANN's President and Chief Executive Officer and with the advice of a small drafting committee, ICANN staff and counsel prepared two documents to implement the policy as adopted by the Board: (1) a written statement of the policy for use by registrars and (2) procedural rules under which administrative proceedings would be conducted in cases involving abusive registrations. The drafting committee included J. Scott Evans (of the Adams Law Firm P.A., a member of the International Trademark Association's Internet Committee and chair of its DNS subcommittee), A. Michael Froomkin (of the University of Miami School of Law, a former member of the WIPO Panel of Experts), Kathryn A. Kleiman (of the Association for Computing Machinery's Internet Governance Committee, a member of the DNSO Non-Commercial Domain Name Holders' Constituency, and co-founder of the Domain Name Rights Coalition), Steven J. Metalitz (General Counsel of the International Intellectual Property Alliance, a member of the DNSO Trademark, Intellectual Property, Anti-counterfeiting Interests Constituency), and Rita A. Rodin (of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, retained by America Online, a member of the DNSO Registrars Constituency). These individuals were selected because of their legal drafting abilities and because they collectively represent a diversity of viewpoints.

    I hope icannWatch.org can do something when it sees something wrong with some organization or policy. Just doing news or comments may not benefit the internet community enough. Now that icannwatch.org has earned some trust, in my view, from the internet community, it should play a more important role in the internet community. For instance, why can't icannwatch.org start a netizen union? When things do not work out, go on strike. If need volunteers, count me in. Send netizens' voice to Washington. If Washington does not a good job, weigh your vote in election years!

    User #2810 Info
    Declan McCullagh's politechbot list has some coverage here (OT but interesting is that he mentions dropping a domain that one wouldn't think would then be used for pr0n sites).

    Not only do I not have any sympathy for Mr. Sallen, he is setting back the cause of valid free-speech sites. -g

    Why do Americans and the United States Departmen
    of Commerce (hellooooo U.S. Commerce not World
    Commerce)

    Why does the U.S. DOC stand by and have a
    contractor like ICANN take $50,000 from many
    American companies only to use that money
    to help off-shore companies develop TLDs ?

    Helllooooo ?? What is wrong with this picture ?

    .INFO - Hal Lubsen claims to be U.S. but .INFO
    is in Ireland and Hal Lubsen was part of the
    move to have CORE (in Switzerland) be the
    DNSmeister.

    .PRO is in Ireland

    .NAME is British

    .BIZ is in Australia and yes in the U.S. a little
    wow, how did that happen ?

    .MUSEUM is in Sweden, part of the Karl Bildt deal

    Only chickens care where .COOP is

    And of course .AERO is, guess where, Switzerland

    The private Swiss bank accounts must be filling
    with domain registration cash. Oh, the picture
    becomes more clear.
