<nettime> [IFWP] 4th WIPO Panel of Experts member signs ICANN petition

May 23, 1999
Another WIPO Panel of Experts member has added his name to the
petition asking ICANN to defer adopting any WIPO Final Report
recommendations. A. Michael Froomkin, whose legal critique of the WIPO
Interim Report led to major revisions in the Final Report, has joined
75 other scholars, technologists, service providers, and users in
asking ICANN to give the Internet community more time to study the
proposals. The group wants to allow the Domain Name Supporting
Organization and an elected ICANN Board to participate in the decision
making process.

The ICANN Board will meet in secret May 27 to decide what to do with
the WIPO report.
