Re: [IFWP] Re: Hilights from today's hearing

Kerry and all,

  True that many people didn't even know there was such a thing
as Intellectual property.  But those that don't on the ICANN (Initial?
Interim Board, which is most of them, with the possible exception
of Frank Fitzimmons and Joe Sims, should have known or not been
selected as "Appointees" to the ICANN in the first place.  My concern
is that it appears that Becky Burr doesn't recognize incompetence
when she sees it....  Fortunatly recognizing incompatance isn't like
pornography!  >;)
