Paul Diaz Statement of Interest
I am a full-time employee of Network Solutions LLC, an ICANN-accredited
registrar offering gTLD and ccTLD domain name registration and Web
presence services to our small business customers. Network Solutions
also has two affiliated, ICANN-accredited registrars, NameSecure L.L.C.
and TLDS L.L.C d/b/a SRSplus. I currently serve as the Policy & Ethics
Manager. My daily responsibilities include handling ICANN-related
issues, corporate advocacy at the local, state and federal levels, and
administering Network Solutions' business ethics program.
Network Solutions is a member of the Registrar Constituency, a voting
stakeholder on the GNSO Council. Network Solutions also is a member of
the United States Council for International Business (USCIB). The USCIB
is a member of the Commercial and Business Users Constituency, also a
voting stakeholder on the GNSO Council. Our primary interest in the
USCIB is the DNS and Internet Identifiers Working Group.
I have no ownership interest in Network Solutions or its affiliated
registrars, nor in any current registry operator. I am not in
possession of any registry sensitive or proprietary information. To the
best of my knowledge, I have no ownership interest in any entity that
currently has business before the GNSO or ICANN.

Carrying on this conversation with myself...
Chuck Gomes came back with a clarification -- saying that I've got it
right. (Many thanks for the speedy reply, Chuck)
a) Everybody should provide a Statement of Interest, unless you
already have one on file
b) It's perfectly reasonable to *have* an interest in the outcome
c) We just need to know about it.
So... Take a look at the SOI's from me and Steve Crocker as
examples. They can be quite short, and only need to describe the
personal or business interest you have in the outcome of our work.
