Here is my statement of interest. Thank you.
Barbara Steele - Statement of Interest for August 2008
I am Senior Manager of Policy and the Compliance Officer for VeriSign, Inc.
VeriSign is the registry operator for the .com and the .net gTLDs and also
provides backend registry services in support of Global Name Registry for
the .name gTLD and Employ Media for the .jobs gTLD. VeriSign is also the
registry operator for two ccTLDs, .cc for the Cocos and Keelings Islands and
.tv for Tuvalu.
As an employee who supports VeriSign's naming services business, I often
have access to registry sensitive information including information about
registrars. Specific responsibilities include managing the team that is
responsible for processing level 1 disputes filed by ICANN accredited
registrars under the Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy. With regard to
both our gTLD and ccTLD registration services businesses, as well as other
VeriSign businesses, our customers and business associates have interests in
various ICANN policy issues and may be members of other GNSO constituencies
and/or supporting organizations.
In addition to Registry Agreements with ICANN for .com and .net, VeriSign
also has obligations to the U.S. Department of Commerce through a
cooperative agreement that was initiated in 1993 and has been amended many
times since then. Those obligations include providing the A and J root
servers as well as support to ICANN in implementing changes in the root zone
file. As such, VeriSign is a member of the DNS Root Server System Advisory
Committee and also works closely with IANA staff in the processing of root
VeriSign is a member of the gTLD Registry Constituency(RyC). I will be
representing the views of the RyC, as applicable, not my own or VeriSign's.
In that regard, I will endeavor to always qualify any personal statements as
such and will follow-up with the RyC to obtain their position.
I own shares of VeriSign stock, hold options to purchase additional shares,
and have restricted stock units (RSUs) that will vest over time. However,
the number of shares I currently own, plus the potential shares I could
possibly own if I exercised all options, is diminutive relative to the total
number of VeriSign shares.
