    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.
