The U.S. government no longer controls the internet

As of Saturday, October 1, the federal National Telecommunications and Information Administration no longer exercises control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which has long been the manager of internet domain names. But now, ICANN is truly an independent non-profit, free from the oversight of the American government. – Lulu Chang, Gizmodo http://ift.tt/2dmGjAO
