Non-Commercial Stakeholders should be heard.
Please reinstate the NCSG charter drafted by NCUC and supported by more than 80 noncommercial organizations and individuals in the April comment period. The ISOC lunchtime meeting, during the ICANN meeting held in Puerto Rico in 2007, was addressed by the Treasuer from the ICANN Board who stated that the Registrars were demanding more of a say in how money was spent at ICANN, in recognition of the size of their contribution. The delegate from the French ISOC pointed out, quietly but firmly, that in fact the individual internet users contributed ALL of the money in question. The fact that you are doing something NOT to make a profit does not, and certainly should not, deprive you of rights and a voice. Deirdre Williams
