Re: ICANN and Verisign settle over SiteFinder
* Chris Woodfield: > Said the flowerpot: "Oh no, not again..." > > http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D8DEL2TO7.htm? > campaign_id=apn_tech_down&chan=tc I don't understand what VeriSign receives in return for their kowtow (under the agreement, they basically waive any right to criticize ICANN's role). Two possible explanations: * ICANN signalled a positive outcome of a future Sitefinder review under the new process. * ICANN promised to grant VeriSign the DNSSEC root and .ARPA maintenance without tender (the "Root Server Management Transition Agreement" goes into that direction; actually, the .ARPA stuff is the interesting one). * VeriSign has recognized that they couldn't win in court, and suddenly want to play nice.
