ATRT Comment Deadline Approaching

The public comment period for the Accountability and Transparency Review Team draft proposed recommendations is coming up fast -- comments need to be in by 3 December.

Thus far comments have been tendered by the International Chamber of Commerce and by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The Danes write:  "Furthermore, ICANN's legal accountability is very narrow as the organization is incorporated under Californian law.  As recommended by the President's Strategy Committee (PSC), ICANN should continue to explore the ways in which it can create an international legal entity (Denmark notes that Brussels and Switzerland was suggested by the PSC) in order to further enhance the organization's accountability to internet users globally."
