Nominet on ICANN and WSIS

Emily Taylor is Nominet's director of legal and policy. In an article posted to she comments on the World Summit on the Information Society:

"It's not a UN body, but it was formed by the UN, and a lot of the contributors are government and not industry. We're working hard to make sure the voice of industry will be heard, but if the industry doesn't wake up and make its voice heard, it will lose out," warns Taylor.

She also adds: "The UN has lots of legitimacy and a global remit, and many people think it's a natural home for internet governance, which leaves Icann's position very uncertain."
