Re: Draft Final Report on Protection of IGO and INGO Identifiers in all

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this report

Security of tenure underpins successful economic systems. If those who have
gained responsibility for administering any system decide to seize legally
held property to redistribute it to their preferred new owners, it limits
the amount of investment others are prepared to commit. This can easily be
seen in countries where those coming to power redistribute property to a
preferred group in the name of the ‘people’ and yet the end result is those
same ‘people’ are economically impoverished as a consequence.

ICANN should be very wary of those calling for the legally held property of
others to be expropriated simply because they wish it to be distributed to
groups that they personally have a greater affinity with. We should be
looking at ways to improve the security of those who are prepared to invest
in establishing businesses underpinned by IP rights not undermining them.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Tattersfield
