So, with my ISOC Board hat on (a hat which none of the ISOC Board members
are legally allowed to take off), I am not inclined to ignore legal
advice from ISOC's corporate counsel. Maybe the IETF Chair could ask the
IETF lawyer (Jorge) whether changing the word from "controlled" to
"managed" has any bad legal implications for the IETF?
I asked Jorge, and here's what he said:
this is a political point rather than a legal one.
The precise nature of the control/management is described
elsewhere, so this is just a characterization rather than
operative (executable) language.
So based on that advice, I'm not inclined to make a fuss over the term.....
but somewhat surprised that ISOC's lawyer thinks it's fuss-worthy.
