INEGroup's position on proposed ICANN bylaws changes - correction Reformatted

 For all,

From: Jeff Williams, Spokesman INEGroup
To:      Whom it may concern ICANN (Initial?) Interim Board)
Subject: Proposed ICANN Bylaw changes see:

  In keeping with the principals and requirements of the White Paper and

the MoU INEGroup is not in support of any bylaws changes at this time.
Our reasons are as follows:

1.) Currently the ICANN has yet to establish a membership, which was
     supposed to be a priority of the ICANN BoD.  This priority has
     evidently changed and therefore opens up the ICANN to capture
     by special interests without a proper mandate by the stakeholders
     as required in the NTIA's White Paper.  We therefore conclude
     that any bylaws changes are not in the best interest of the ICANN
     (Without a  membership) and open to detrimental broad impact on
     the stakeholders.

2.) The changes that are proposed by the ICANN BoD would in effect
      permanently exclude or disenfranchise active participation in
      ICANN itself unless those stakeholders are members of a SO or
      constituency associated with an SO.  As such many if not most
      stakeholders have no voice or vote in their own futures or the
      futures on the internet of  their associated businesses or
