Councilor: US power over ICANN merely 'moral'

SINGAPORE--Over a year into the signing of the Affirmation of Commitments (AOC) pact with the United States, which positions the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as a private sector entity, questions over its autonomy remain. Shedding light into the matter, an ICANN councilor noted that while the organization remained under U.S. purview, that power is "moral" and will be lost once exercised.

Edmon Chung, CEO of DotAsia and a councilor on ICANN's GNSO (generic names supporting organization) committee, said the California-based organization can appear "very weird" to external parties which are not aware of its internal workings. This is particularly so when the issues of autonomy and accountability are raised, he noted.
