ISOC will permit IASA and its designee(s) to have sole control and
custodianship of such Developed Software, and ISOC
will not utilize or access such Developed Software in
connection with any ISOC function other than IETF without
the written consent of the IAD.
This looks problematic to me. It suggests that if the IASA funds
development work on an open-source ticketing system, that ISOC would not be
allowed to use that system without the consent of the IAD. This is wrong -
if the IASA is going to fund any open-source development, it should not
expect to have control over who uses the result.
Also, I'm a bit concerned about language that tries to limit what ISOC can
do without the written consent of the IAD. Given that the IAD will be an
employee of ISOC, it's not clear that this actually provides any protection.
