Lawmaker Warns ICANN on Domain 'Technical Glitch'

The chairman of a key House Judiciary subcommittee warned the group that runs the Internet's domain name system that if it doesn't get the roll out of its new domain name program right, some countries may use it as an excuse to seek more regulation of the Internet. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., voiced concern about some of the problems the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers is having with the database it is using to accept applications from those seeking to apply to run a new top-level domain name.
