Ugh. U.S. Federal Political Meddling at ICANN re: TLDs?

by on May 23, 2006

Ben Charny reports that federal officials leaned on ICANN to reject the .xxx domain the other week.

One reason why it’s so easy to reject things like the U.N.‘s demand for a piece of “Internet governance” is because their aims are so transparently political. ICANN remains technically under U.S. government authority, but the government hasn’t exercised that authority much. Perhaps until now.

If true: bad thing.
