Opposition of CyberSafety Constituency
I am registering opposition to the New CyberSafety Constituency Petition and Charter. At the heart of the matter is that this CyberSafety Constituency would solely focus on content while ICANN has taken pains to stress that it does not regulate Internet content. Formalizing this group within ICANN would induce internal pressure to expand ICANN's influence in to areas it has avoided in the past. This would impact ICANN's resources as it attempts to grapple with issues that have never been central to ICANN's intent or role. Internet security is a laudable goal. However, there are already numerous other organizations dedicated to this concern. Many of these organizations engage non-profit and private interests and would prove to be a much more appropriate venue for these concerns than ICANN.
