I am the liaison from ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC). I'm a
full professor of law in China University of Political Science and Law,
which is in Beijing, China. In the academic year of 2006-2007, I'm
a visiting fellow of Information Society Project, Yale University, New
Haven, CT, USA. In above positions, I'm doing teaching and research works.
My publications on IDN issues include: "The Voice of China: A Story of
Chinese Character Domain Names"( New York:Cardozo Journal of International
Comparative Law, Vol. 12, No. 2, Fall 2004, P. 559-592) and "Territorialism
versus Universalism: International Intellectual Property Law in the
Internationalized Domain Name System"(Oxford: the Journal of World
Intellectual Property, 2006, 9: 1-24).

I don't have any financial or management connection with any registry,
registrar or other firm that is interested parties in IDNs. I have no any type
of commercial interest in IDNs.

WG Members,

One of the reasons Statements of Interest are important to be (a) filed,
and (b) include financial and especially IDN interests is to later avoid
"fox guarding the henhouse" situations, where policy-makers do not disclose
their interests while making policy, and later go on to utilize such policy
that might have been beneficial to their hitherto unstated interests.

As a result, I exhort you to submit your Statements of Interest, that
cover at least the following key areas:

1. Current vocation, employer and position

2. Type of work performed in 1 above

3.  Financial ownership or management leadership of registries, registrars
or other firms that are interested parties in IDNs.

4. Type of commercial interest in IDNs.

If you have already submitted a Statement of Interest, please review it to
ensure you have covered items 1-4 above.  Glen will assist in providing to
the WG membership a list of individuals who are not compliant with the SOI
at the end of the day on Friday, March 23.



Statement of Interest of Ram Mohan

I manage business operations, strategy and technology for Afilias Limited,
the ICANN designated registry operator of the .INFO gTLD.

Afilias is the registry services provider for several gTLD, sTLD and ccTLD
registries, including .ORG, .MOBI, .ASIA and .AERO.

I own shares in several registrars and registries.  In do not own a
material number of shares in any instance, and am not a controlling
shareholder or board member.

Afilias is keenly interested in IDNs, has a commercial interest in the
launch of IDNs, and intends to apply for IDN TLDs.

Vice President, Business Operations
Chief Technology Officer
