Re: [process2] Re: [ga] WIPO's Best Practices for ccTLDs
IMHO, I understand that WIPO has a very particular role in this entire situation, which is safeguarding the interests and rights of the intellectual property community. The Best Practices are simply suggestions to ccTLD adminsitrators, not orders. Adhesion is not mandatory.
Unfortunately, active participation in ICANN is impossible to me ( I live in Brazil ), but I would love to share my 0.002 cents on this thread.
