The Electronic Frontier Foundation published an article today after participating in a public forum today
The forum was part of ICANN’s winter meeting. Elliot Harmon and Mitch Stoltz stated that ICANN did not answer any of their questions today. Ethos Capital is out there trying to ease some of the fears by forming a stewardship council but many see it as empty.
From the article:
Ethos Capital’s attempt to address criticism by forming a Stewardship Council doesn’t resolve the NGO sector’s concerns. PIR’s ability to veto council members ensures that the council will stay in lockstep with PIR.
