ICANN kills .xxx, USG ordered to turn over related documents by Brenden Kuerbis
Brenden Kuerbis on the Internet Governance Project Blog notes the IGP provided an analysis of documents obtained through FOI by ICM that showed “how US supervision of ICANN was influenced by domestic political pressure. They left no room for doubt that the US altered its policy toward ICANN in response to this pressure, and that it actively worked in tandem with ICANN to conceal the nature and significance of US governmental influence over ICANN from the media.” Further, “It will not be a surprise if these new documents reveal more behind the scenes pressure by the USG.”
