The CDT‘s Rob Courtney writes on the GA list: This afternoon, CDT transmitted the following letter to Asst. Sec. Nancy Victory and Robin Layton at the Department of Commerce. The letter urges Commerce to commit to adding new provisions to the ICANN MOU, including provisions to create meaningful limits on ICANN’s authorities, establish accountability mechanisms, and provide representation. The letter also urges that the MOU’s duration be short, not to exceed one year, and that ICANN submit bi-annual public reports on its progress to Commerce and the GAC.
The letter is available from CDT’s web site.
