Headline: Bliley Targets All Domain Name Players - Update
Does DOJ and NTIA got it stuff together???
" House Commerce Committee
Chairman Thomas Bliley, R-Va., yesterday launched
an expanded investigation into the practices of the
Commerce Department, the Justice Department, the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN) and Network Solutions Inc."
"Bliley wants to get "a better sense of whether the
Department of Commerce sufficiently thought through
all of the problems that would arise in the transition
process and whether they could have done a better
job to address them early on," a Commerce
Committee staffer told Newsbytes today."
"Bliley has sent
a series of letters demanding to know more about the
Commerce Department's management of the
privatization process; ICANN's judgment in its
dealings with registrars; Network Solutions'
much-disputed ownership of the "WHOIS" database;
and the Justice Department's potentially collusive
conversations with ICANN attorney Joe Sims."
