Re: [IFWP] CORE (ICANN) dispute resolution policy

Mr. Sondow and Everyone,

  It is rather doubtful that any EU court would acknowledge this agreement to

is widely respected and excepted in the EU currently.  That recommendation
is decidedly in disagreement with this "Agreement" to which you speak.
