Thanks, Ram. Probably my statement could be more explicit. I have no financial 
involvement myself in my business, nor do i have client activities that are 
about commercial interests in idns. I sort of thoight that inherent in my 
statement, but after reading your note, i am happy to be very clear. Best 
regards, marilyn

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