Thanks Abbe! I think it's good too - Toby and Michael did a great job! I will forward on those points, and let them know they can get in touch with you.

Does anyone else have any thoughts on the Charter Commentary? A reminder that it can be accessed here:  http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/node/419, and if you do have comments please send them to the list before August 30 (Tuesday) so Toby has time to incorporate them before the IGF.

All the best,
