ISOC responds to ICANN’s call for comments on forming a GSNO CyberSafety Constituency

The Internet Society this week lodged an official response to ICANN’s recent call for comments on a petition to form a a GSNO CyberSafety Constituency.

ISOC’s response, developed in full consultation with the ISOC Board of Trustees, outlined the principles upon which ISOC was founded and is still driven by, and also stressed the importance of ICANN maintaining its specific, focused technical mission and mandate. In this context, ISOC’s response noted that the petition calls for a constituency that would “seek to control or regulate content on the Internet”. On these grounds, ISOC opposes the proposal.
