I do not understand how ICANN adjudicates between various rights
claimants (or where it gets the authority to so adjudicate).
Isn't this the province of followup challenges in the courts etc?
So while it may fine for us to declare that as a general principle of
a good thing - i certainly do not want strings to infringe on the
rights of the commons, it does not seem something that ICANN can or
should do anything about.
