Subject: Re: Big Business has no right to annex the Internet.

        "The internet is for the people of this world to communicate and exchange information. Yes, to do business too.  But Big Business does not and MUST not own the Internet. Trying to annex parts of it, by making Trademark claims, in my opinion, abuses the system."

Good points.

"The Internet belongs to the people and the Internet belongs to the world.  I believe there is a STRONG case for a PARLIAMENT of Internet users, democratically elected, to whom ICANN or a replacement organisation should be made fully accountable.  I believe a PARLIAMENT of Internet users representing the whole world would insist on ICANN taking open, accountable actions and decisions - and would insist on asking awkward questions and demanding a COMPLETE disassociation of ICANN from those companies (such as registrars) who can so easily create conflicts of interest in the decision-making processes."

Bad point.
