I can find no publicly-disclosed record of any such "grant". In
accordance with ICANN's transparency Bylaw, I request that you tell us:
(1) The URL of the minutes and the reference number of the resolution of
the Board of Directors approving each of these purported amendments.
(2) The URL at which each of these proposed amendments was posted for
public comment prior to the Board's consideration of each proposal.
(3) The manner in which a public forum was prooved for public comment on
each of these proposed amendments.
(4) All records of ICANN's consideration of these proposals.
Any action by ICANN to "grant" such amendments or extensions was not
decided in accrodance with ICANN's priocedural Bylaws, particularly those
providing for transparency as a necessary precondition for public
participation. Any such purported action was null and void, and should be
reconsidered "de novo" through a properly transparent and procedurally
correct process, including due notice and opportunity for public comment.
I stand by my original comment that there is not any *valid* current
contractual agreement between ICANN and the former sponsor of .AERO.
