 CCAOI’s Comments on the Proposed Accountability Enhancements (Work Stream
1)

 

At the outset we  CCAOI an association representing the ecosystem of
Internet stakeholders in India comprising of Connectivity Providers such as
Public Internet Access Providers (PIA's)/ Cybercafés/Telecentres; Content
Providers; First time Internet users; wishes to thank Cross Community
Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) on
Proposed Accountability Enhancements (Work Stream 1) for providing  the
opportunity to comment on the Initial draft on Proposed Accountability
Enhancements (Work Stream 1). Accountability and Transparency of ICANN to
the global community, we believe is critical for the smooth running of the
IANA Functions.

 

We are also of the opinion that Internet should remain stable and secure and
all discussion should prioritize on the core guiding principles of security,
stability and resilience of the internet. 

 

In that light sharing CCAOI’s preliminary comments:

 

·         The CCWG Accountability draft seems quite complex and this might
make it more difficult for stakeholders to participate in the process.

 

·         For more engagement of the global community outside ICANN, the
latter must promote greater engagement through more face to face meetings
across the world and outreach activities.

 

·         There seems to be a lack of in-depth discussion of jurisdiction of
ICANN-Especially, US jurisdiction of ICANN.

 

·         There should also be emphasis on  accountability track including
financial accountability of ICANN, and use of proceeds from new gTLD
auctions.

 

·         The focus on accountability should not be limited to ICANN, but
also contributors such as IETF, RIRs, National Names and Number Registries
and other players including respective staff and secretariats.
