Warsaw, 25 February 1999

Mr. Michael Roberts
Interim President and CEO
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) 
339 La Cuesta Drive 
Portola Valley, CA 94028

Dear Mr. Roberts,

On behalf of the SM-Media Ltd, ISP in Warsaw, Poland, please convey to the
Board of the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) our
support for the Barcelona-Monterrey-Washington application to be recognized
as the Domain Name Supporting Organization (DNSO) and its continuing
process of
unification with our company as one of the biggest ISP in Poland.
The application submitted to ICANN on 5 February 1999 by the International
Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the American Intellectual Property Law
Association (AIPLA), Electronic Commerce Europe (ECE), European ISP
Association (EuroISPA), Information Technology Association of America
(ITAA), International Council of Registrars (CORE), International Trademark
Association (INTA), Internet Society (ISOC), Policy Oversight Committee
(POC), and the World
Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) lays out a credible
and effective organizational structure for ICANN's Domain Name
Supporting Organization, which meets the requirements of Article 1,
Section 3 (b) of ICANN's Bylaws.

We believe that the breadth of stakeholders represented by the
organizations endorsing this application and its unification process
represent a broad consensus among a critical mass of Internet
Stakeholders. In our opinion it should form the basis of how to create a
viable, open, and transparent DNSO that will supply the ICANN Board with
well-developed, timely and well-reasoned policy recommendations
reflecting the consensus and interests of all of the various
stakeholders from around the world. 

Please accept this letter as our expression of support for both the
Barcelona-Monterrey-Washington application and the process of further
refining the application to present the ICANN board with the most
inclusive and representative application possible in advance of the
ICANN meeting in Singapore on 2-4 March 1999.

Yours sincerely,
