Breaking news: All IDN plans are shelved - Rod Beckstrom

Quote:
Rod Beckstrom, president of ICANN has today announced in an emergency session at ICANN headquarters in Marina del Rey, California that all IDN implementation plans have been shelved for the time being.

Beckstrom said "Due to interference from the US government and several government sponsored bodies it is not feasible for us to continue down the road we have laid out for the implementation of IDNs"
