EU, US Call for ICANN Internet Governance Reforms

The U.S. and the European Union have agreed to work together to ensure that domain naming on the Internet remains in the hands of independent private-sector stakeholders, but have demanded reforms. On Thursday, E.U. Digital Agenda Commissioner Neelie Kroes and Larry Strickling, assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce, said that they will continue to support the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) system for assigning top level domains.

The news comes following ICANN's controversial decision to approve the .xxx domain suffix for adult websites last month following years of deliberations. The move has faced opposition from inside and outside the pornography industry, with anti-porn protesters claiming it legitimizes porn and the adult industry concerned that it will make their sites easier to block en masse.

Great news but at the same time it's kind of a no brainer. After Drewbert posted some stuff about the ITU here, it's always been clear in my mind that there was no alternative to ICANN.
