Key Internet domain up for grabs

This month, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, will begin deciding what company will run the .net. "It's the most important decision ICANN has ever had to make" said Tom Galvin, vice president of government relations for VeriSign (In 2001, VeriSign agreed to relinquish its hold on .net in exchange for a contract that would give the addressing giant near-permanent control over the larger and more lucrative .com).
