With respect, again, there is no applicable law requiring ICANN to
respect human rights since the only applicable laws (whether domestic
law or international law) apply ONLY to governments and public
authorities, so this By-Law is an effective nullity.
It sounds nice, and means nothing in terms of committing ICANN to do
anything but follow California law, which is is obliged to do anyway.
Why is the ICANN Board scared of agreeing to respect the rights in the
UDHR?? It should be proud to set an example to other multistakeholder
and private sector organisations.
