Thank you for sharing your comments.  21st Century Fox agrees that ICANN should focus on its narrow mandate related to Internet names and numbers.  However, no matter how hard ICANN tries, its technical mandate will impact the public interest.  Indeed, this is one of the important reasons the GAC was formed, to ensure that ICANN’s technical work comports with public policies, including those that impact the public interest.  With this in mind, we do not support the deletion of references to the public interest but agree that ICANN should limit public interest matters to those that arise out of ICANN’s technical mandate for the name and numbering system.

We are happy to discuss.

Best regards,

Please see some suggested edits from Google on the attached document.  While there is some amount of reorganizing, I believe our suggested edits preserve the points made in the original document while making some improvements for flow and clarity.  I have also suggested deviation from ICANN's proposed submission form where adhering to it obscured the content of our comments.

I will draft something for ICANN mission/lingage to I-GOV. I wanted to hear from CCWG and 1NET first, and that happened this week.

I also moved this to bc-private just temporarily.

David, Aparna, Philip, and I were on CCWG and David, Aparna, and others from business COMMUNITY, were on relevant calls last week. I will send a short assessment over week end.

If members want public access to our discussions, we can move back to public list, but I didn't want to do that, without full consideration from BC members.

Attached is the current draft BC comment on ICANN’s Vision, Mission & Focus for 5-year Strategic Plan, which came out of last summer’s "brainstorming" by board, community and staff. (link<http://www.icann.org/en/about/planning/strategic-engagement/focus-areas-29oct13-en.pdf>)

Tim Chen and Chris Chaplow led drafting of the BC comment, with help from Martin Sutton, Marilyn Cade, and Andrew Mack.

Comments close 31-Jan, so today begins our 14-day review period.

We need draft comments for Focus Area V: Defining role clarity for ICANN in the Internet governance ecosystem.
Yesterday I shared my views about ICANN limiting its mission and avoiding entanglements in the broader I-Gov debate.       If no BC members contribute text for Area V, then I can draft something next week.

Please REPLY ALL with edits (TRACK CHANGES)as soon as possible, since the comment deadline is 31-Jan-2014.

Thanks again to Tim and Chris for taking the lead on this.
