Group Outlines Plan for U.S. Transition of ICANN

An international group of Internet experts has released a proposal for how the U.S. can cede oversight of the non-profit that manages the Internet’s names and addresses. The 199-page document follows the U.S. Commerce Department’s controversial announcement last year that it would transfer its stewardship of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to a global network of interested parties.
