Good point Chris,

1) Maybe a Quiz on the terms of use on the ICANN Adobe Connect page would
be a good point to start a personal introspection about this issue.

2) Next, I would recognise that some legal experts take note of the great
efforts some lawyers in the list take to make issues clear and
understandable to non-US non-lawyers. I won't mention names here, but they
both know how much I appreciate the clarity and good style they use for the
benefit and representativenes of the whole exercise. This should not become
a race to demonstrate the smartest legal argument, but the general public
good of the proposals and ideas and make it more inclusive.

Thank for raising it
