I would reject "sectoral diversity" as a legitimate criterion if and when it
leads to 3 North Americans and 3 Europeans representing the CSG on the Council.
That is not diversity.
A robust Commercial Users Constituency, in which Council representatives are
elected by a diverse, truly global collection of organizations and individuals,
should have no trouble having candidates stand from multiple sectors and
Here's an interesting test question, Philip: do you consider yourself (head of
a trademark/brand lobbying organization) to be part of a different "sector"
than Steve Metalitz (head of a copyright lobbying organization)?
