Public Comment

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.

Summary of Submission

I would have loved developing these points but as the period of time to answer is really short, here is my submission:

1) As an open worldwide organization, please let more time to respond to public comments. Can you extend ?

2) As a worldwide organization, ICANN should open reports and comments to other languages. This is a matter of equity.

3) Why Panelists can also be representatives of complainants or respondents ? It appears that in some cases, a lawyer is a panelist. In other cases the same lawyer (or the law firm the lawyer is working for) is a representative. This is confusing, this should be avoided.

4) No single panelist, or only if accepted and chosen by both parties

5) No panelist chosen by the complainant or defendant only

6) The complainant should have tried to reach the respondent before opening a UDRP and must bring that proof in the complaint.

7) Opening the possibility to appeal a decision

8) Preventing cases by educating the domain name registrants, a program that could be leaded by ICANN
