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.
We wish to voice our support for the comments submitted by PIR. They reflect our views and concerns and have been very well articulated. In other fora, such as interactions with the various parts of the EU, companies and individuals have to register on the transparency register. That register is quite detailed and must be kept current.
