The change would end the long-running contract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based nonprofit group. That contract is set to expire next year but could be extended if the transition plan is not complete.
“We look forward to ICANN convening stakeholders across the global Internet community to craft an appropriate transition plan,” Lawrence E. Strickling, assistant secretary of commerce for communications and information, said in a statement.
FK – Whenever they start using that key term ‘stakeholders’ you know you’re in trouble. It’s a commie word that means “You’ll end up doing what we tell you!” Kinda’ like ‘consensus.’
If they end the net as we know it, the war begins because that will be the same as ending the First Amendment. Time to fall back on the Second.
