Public Comment is a vital part of our multistakeholder model. It provides a mechanism for stakeholders to have their opinions and recommendations formally and publicly documented. It is an opportunity for the ICANN community to effect change and improve policies and operations.
The At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) has submitted its comments via the enclosed attachment.
The official ALAC statement has been discussed by the Consolidated Party Working Group (CPWG) and was ratified by the ALAC ahead of submission.
