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.
