Re: All so predictable
"Only the lawyers are happy."
Is it any surprise that
1: The former chair of ICANN is an intellectual property lawyer
2: He was caught doing the kind of thing ICANN has been caught doing in previous organisations he was part of.
3: He's now on the staff of a registry in Singapore.
4: It was under his chairmanship that ICANN changed its policy, rolled out plans for hundred of new top level domains and steamrollered those TLDs over existing ones operated by alternate root servers. (Anticompetitive behaviour, etc)
