Judge Won't Dismiss Antitrust Claims Against ICANN

A case pitting adult entertainment companies against the gatekeepers of Internet domain names cleared a key hurdle, when a federal judge in Los Angeles largely allowed antitrust claims over the controversial .xxx domain to go forward.  U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez partly granted motions to dismiss filed by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the non-profit organization in charge of the domain name system, and ICM Registry, LLC, the registry running the .xxx domain.
