>>The complaint is mistaken.  ICANN holds open meetings, free to attend, with
>>open mike sessions for public comment.  People have always been allowed to
>>distribute policy drafts, proposals, RFCs, resolutions, etc.  The meeting is
>>not, however, a trade show, and we don't want companies to use it for
>>marketing purposes.  So the distribution of commercial literature is
>>restricted to sponsors.  That's SOP for meetings like this.
