Re: [ga] domain name owner's bill of rights

Sri and all,

In the absence of legally solid -Supreme Court recognized- property rights,
a DN Owners' Bill of Rights arrived at by consensus of the Internet
Stakeholders is a necessity for the protection of the natural rights
associated with Naming and Owning a Domain on the Net.

The current contract that a Registrant has to sign is one-sided and
stresses  obligations more than  rights.
Renewal notices sound scary, not so much to big companies, but more to
Individuals and make a DN owner feel insecure.  Confident investment by
Individual DN owners and Small businesses in  promoting and promulgating
their  Domain is not encouraged by this insecurity.

One of the first tasks for an Individual's constituency is to formulate
this Bill of Rights and seek the consensus of the DNSO on such a document.
The courts will take notice.

--Joop Teernstra LL.M.--  
the Cyberspace Association and 
the constituency for Individual Domain Name Owners
Elected representative.
