>> My problem with "applicable law" is that Human Rights are fundamental, whereas laws differ from country to country. And Human Rights can not be "diminished", for the lack of a better word, by the laws of a country.
>> So, if "applicable law" mean the Bylaws and not the law of any country or countries, lets's put this in, if only for avoidance of doubt.
I would also expect that ICANN is already subject to "applicable" national laws - whether or not they are in the bylaws.
So a bylaw that states that ICANN is subject to applicable laws seems somewhat redundant.
