EU welcomes autonomy plan for Net governance
By Reuters
Published: October 2, 2006, 4:58 AM PDT
C/Net

The European Commission welcomed on Monday U.S. government moves to make the company that manages Internet domain names independent by 2009, but said it would monitor the process carefully.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which controls addresses including ".com" and country domain names such as ".cn" for China, now reports to the U.S. Commerce Department.

On Friday, the Commerce Department said it would retain oversight for three more years, renewing an agreement that was scheduled to expire last weekend.

But a lighter regime was introduced, with ICANN no longer having to file reports with the Commerce Department every six months or having its work prescribed for it, the European Commission said.

I have to agree that any one country effectively having controll is a bad move, I think that if the UN or such was in charge it would make for a fairer system

So do you want someone like let's say China having say over your web? (cuz ya know they don't limit what there people get on the web)

It's not fair now? Well maybe your right... under UN controll nothing will ever get done or take forever to do.

I for one think this is just a move to move the internet over to a "BUSINESS MODEL" web. Say good bye to free internet.
