[council] Concerns in UDRP Task Force Letter.DOC
Caroline and other NC members,
Thank you for your works so far.
People from the areas where we cannot send their technical experts
on this issue are very concerned in this ToR UDRP.
According to UDRP Review's ToR, this proposal either intentionally or
unconsciously prevent from active participations out of Asia Pacific,
Latin America and Africa in the name of "technical experts" condition.
If you want to nicely put we prepared a "public comment" period later
which would allow our voices, which will be more serious insult to us.
These group of people, more than 2/3 of the world population, have been
structually prevented from their participation first due to our language
barriers and secondly due to our inferiority to technical knowledge which
once again has been caused by our economy development situation.
If this architecture consciously ignored by the leaders of rule-setters,
I do advise you that those experts discussion should be restricted to
their regions not to those people who have been blocked with reasons.
FYI, out of ToR
