There is not a whole lot of substance in this response from ISOC (in my opinion).

That being said, ICANN has recently sent a letter to ISOC that raises a number of very important questions that challenge much of the narrative advanced in ISOC's letter to us.

That letter can be found here:

I also encourage the reading of this letter from Jones Day, ICANN's counsel, to Ethos Capital, disputing a number of Ethos Capital's talking points:

In addition, as The Register has noted, it is not Ethos Capital itself who will own the Public Interest Registry if the sale concludes. That will be another shell company, Purpose Domains Direct LLC, of which we know nothing about, not even its directors. So the assurances of Ethos Capital mean very little if they are not in direct charge of Purpose Domains Direct LLC.
