Re: [council] Updated list of questions for the candidates in the GNSO teleconference on 11 March

Dear Bruce,

Our constituency members requested to add up two more questions as follows. Could you include those?

1) In a traditional corporation, the Board is supposed to oversee the staff. In ICANN, the staff often oversees the Board. If you were a Board member, what efforts would you make to seek independent input (apart from Staff reports) for the decisions you were being asked to make?

2) What role do you think the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) plays in the ICANN process. Is it one of many inputs or is ICANN obliged to respond when WIPO tells it to do something?
