Re: Second draft of CyberCrime Treaty Statement
There seems to be strong support for making this a community-wide
effort, i.e. expanding it beyond the Board itself. The issue has
clearly motivated many Board members, so I think it would be
inappropriate for MITRE to attempt to "reel it in" and limit it only
to the Board. I believe that my management would agree with me on
this, based on discussions we had earlier this week.
I have received private emails from some members who would be
comfortable with signing something as individuals, so to me that's
additional reason for not making this a Board-only effort.

I can't commit us to coordinating this larger effort, but I'll see
what support we might be able to provide. Alan Paller also has
experience with creating these types of "consensus-based position
papers" (for lack of a better term ;-)
Once the Board has largely agreed on a draft, I suggest creating a
separate mailing list for anyone who wants to participate in this
effort. That could allow non-Board members to join the dialog, and it
may help people to coordinate better.
