This comment is submitted on behalf of the Just Net Coalition (JNC) which
comprises several dozen civil society organizations and individuals from
different regions globally, concerned with issues of Internet governance,
from the perspective of all human rights, including democracy and economic
and social justice. The JNC web site is at: http://justnetcoalition.org

That CCWG-Accountability proposal does NOT enhance ICANN's accountability.
On the contrary, it hands effective control of ICANN to the domain name and
address industry, a narrow segment of the global multistakeholder community.

As we have previously stated, ICANN must become a true membership
organization, not a fake one in which there is only one member and that
member is controlled by the very industry that ICANN is supposed to
regulate. Further, ICANN must not remain subject to US jurisdiction.

We refer to our proposal, at:


In addition, we associate with the comments at:


Those comments apply a fortiori to the latest CCWG-Accountability proposal.
