Should ALAC also make any public comment on ICANN/NTIA

Either way, if we can, I think that will be great.

Take a Stand on Internet Governance!
In advance of renewing the current agreement between the U.S. Department
of Commerce and ICANN, the U.S. government's National Telecommunications
and Information Administration (NTIA) has asked for public comments about
its supervision of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
This is an important opportunity for public participation in the reform
of ICANN and Internet governance. We urge everyone to let your opinion of
how ICANN is working and how it can be improved be known. Comments are
due by July 7.
The Internet Governance Project is focusing public attention on the
Bush administration's controversial and divisive assertion of unilateral
control over the DNS root. IGP is urging Internet users everywhere to

people all over the world. The Internet is global, not national.
Therefore no single Government should have a pre-eminent role in Internet
As the US reviews its contract with ICANN, it should work cooperatively
with all stakeholders to complete the transition to a Domain Name System
independent of US governmental control.
You can transmit this statement directly to the NTIA and key
Congressional committee chairs. Just visit
