Conflict of Interest Statements
For those of you following the GNSO Council discussion list, you might have been wondering what has prompted the recent spate of conflict of interest disclosures...I'm told that a certain business-minded GNSO Councilor is performing consulting work for a certain firm in the domain name aftermarket. Apparently this stoked the ire of a certain registry that chose to have a few quiet words with certain friends on the Council. Voila! -- a conflict of interest process emerges. The Councilor in question, by the way, has yet to submit a conflict of interest declaration.
