Re: [registrars] ICANN Budget
how can you find an effective funding mechanism without a review of the
operational structure and business plan for ICANN ?
historically, in any operation of this nature, this approach has proven the
most effective way in helping any group like the TFF determine an
effective funding mechanism that will be both the most equitable as well as
the least controversial.
