NTIA Expresses Support for New gTLD Program

Kevin Murphy reporting in DomainIncite: “NTIA boss Larry Strickling has come out in support of ICANN and its new top-level domains program, warning that its opponents ‘provide ammunition’ to authoritarian regimes. Speaking in Washington DC yesterday, Strickling warned that organizations fighting to put a stop to the new gTLD program risk provoking a UN takeover of the internet.”
