The Domain Name Association reaction to announcement US to end oversight of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)

., (PresseBox) - "The DNA welcomes a deliberate, thoughtful process, inclusive of all stakeholder views to determine the future of the IANA function," said Kurt Pritz, executive director of the Domain Name Association. "As our members are some of the most widely recognized customers of IANA, we will be playing an active role in the process moving forward. The US government performs admirably in this role and it is important that any new oversight mechanism perform as reliably and consistently, and in a manner that prevents the Internet from onerous regulations and/or content controls."
