[ga] Corrections and Additions to my Post
My apologies.. I provided an incorrect link in my last post.
I meant to point to this URL when I stated that
"Louis Touton contradicts the statement and admits that there is another
His exact quote was:
"Not to negate that there might be other things in the world that could be
adjusted in making one thing plus and one thing minus that better suits
both parties as often happens in a negotiation"
In the post that I sent... Louis continues to argue that there are no other
alternatives and when he says "there are no alternative but 'A' or 'B' " ..
a bunch of people in the audience all blurt out at once.... "Why? Why
not?"... pretty indicative of the overall feeling in the room.
Also...the real-time scribe's notes from Erica Roberts:
Roberts: Share Fockler's concern re demonstrating commitment to bottom-up
process. Verisign negotiated a short-term extension on their cooperative
agreement with the DoC (Amendment 11). Then government-NSI negotiation came
to include ICANN also (leading to Amendment 19). Proposed resolution was
posted in September 1999, agreed to by Board in November 1999. Clock has
been ticking ever since then. Have had discussions with Verisign since last
fall re how Verisign would satisfy obligations of contract. Staff never
purported to reopen policy aspects of this matter, and do not purport to do
so now. Short, high-intensity dialogue began in January, leading to this
document, which was posted on March 1, as soon as respective legal teams
gave the go-ahead. So this was not a policy process, and is not an
abrogation of ICANN's general bottom-up process.
