I am writing to urge the ICANN Board to abide by the declaration of the
Independent Review Panel and to enter into a registry agreement with ICM
without further delay.
Regardless of the nature of the sTLD, ICANN must respect the procedures it has
established to ensure accountability to the wider Internet community.Failing to
fully abide by the decision of the IRP will demonstrate that ICANN has no
meaningful commitment to accountability, and will seriously damage ICANNs
legitimacy and authority.
Therefore, ICANN has only one option if it wishes to preserve the integrity of
its procedures and its long-term credibility as the manager of the DNS:
immediately execute a registry agreement with ICM and allow ICM to proceed with
the launch of the sTLD.
