Mike Palage: ICANN 3.0 Should “Refocus” on Original Purpose

by on June 20, 2009 · 21 comments

PFF Adjunct Fellow Mike Palage, who served on the ICANN board from 2003 to 2006, filed these comments (PDF) on the NTIA’s recent Notice of Inquiry regarding ICANN’s future.  Mike’s four key points were as follows:

  1. ICANN’s Periodic Review of its internal operations and supporting organizations has failed, and has become nothing more than a “perpetual motion machine of public comments and documentation producing no meaningful results.” Only a second Evolution and Reform Process can solve ICANN’s current deficiencies;
  2. ICANN must hardcode into its policies and its contracts the principle that its policies cannot supersede national laws;
  3. ICANN must cease any operational role in technical infrastructure as required by its bylaws and focus instead on its mission as a technical coordinator; and
  4. Congress must avoid “kicking the JPA can down the road” and instead provide much-needed leadership by creating a solid foundation for ICANN 3.0 in legislation after proper consultation with the Government Accountability Office.

    I support Mike's comments on the NTIA’s recent Notice of Inquiry regarding ICANN’s future. Those comments show an in depth understanding of ICANN's role in internet governance and its failure to function properly in the recent years. – Mike

    ICANN must hardcode into its policies and its contracts the principle that its policies cannot supersede national laws;

    Very dangerous–so a country that can pass laws against certain sites, and require ICANN to enforce them. This is a backdoor for the IP fascsits to get the DMCA or the ACTA enforced by a supra-national body.

    Oh, and where is the coverage at this supposedly pro-fredom site about the ACTA???
