Re: [discuss] Trademarks and WIPO issues

Dennis and all,

  I see nothing wrong with ICANN proposing, text or the direction  of international
conventions", as you put it.  But I DO see something wrong with ICANN
doing so in the Stakeholders name's.  They have no such mandate,
nor are they likely to get one anytime soon.

  What is appalling and amazing to me anyway, is that Becky Burr and
the NTIA is allowing the ICANN to use the stakeholders names in this
manner, knowing that the ICANN does not have such a mandate..
