Obama Administration Criticized For ICANN Plans

 
The Obama Administration came under fire this week for its plans to end U.S. government oversight of ICANN, the body that manages Internet domain names and addresses. Congressional Republicans took the Commerce Department to task for the plan saying it could lead to censorship by giving the United Nations or even repressive governments more control over the Internet.
 
Last month, the Commerce Department said it plans to hand oversight of ICANN to a governing body made up of businesses, nonprofit groups and engineers.
