As a follow-up to my post of August 18th (Good riddance Rod Beckstrom!) - some good news this morning from Politico--
POLITICO Morning Tech - POLITICO.com: "SENATE HEARING COULD SLOW DOWN ICANN’S PLANS FOR DOMAIN NAME EXPANSION – Dan Jaffe, executive vice president of the Association of National Advertisers, said the Senate Commerce Committee hearing this Thursday on ICANN’s top level domain name expansion is a good sign. “The fact they are holding a hearing is significant,” he said. “They are sufficiently concerned that they feel they need to take a second and third look. ... People are faced with a Hobson’s choice — sit on the sidelines, but it will cost them millions of dollars in increased monitoring. Or they have to buy top-level domains they don't want in order to protect their companies. If that is true for the largest companies in the world, what does that mean for the middle-sized or smaller companies?”"
Maybe somebody in Washington is listening.
