    .net .net report out; public input disregarded in advance
    posted by tbyfield on Tuesday March 29 2005, @06:20PM

    According to “an update on the selection of a successor operator for the .NET registry,”, “Telcordia has completed a period of extensive evaluation” and “The final scoring result gave a slight advantage to VeriSign over Sentan, who were in order followed by Afilias, Denic and CORE++.” As usual, “The Internet community is now invited to review the report”—available here—and while y’all are occupying yourselves, “ICANN will promptly enter negotiations with the top-ranked applicant to reach a mutually acceptable registry agreement.”

    Say what?? Verisign received the same score for their record in implementing ICANN Policy as Neulevel, JPRS and Afilias? What universe did these evaluators come from?

    Afilias only entered the bidding because Verisign controls it and wanted to make it look like there were competitive bids. Afilias was not going to do too well in the rankings because they wanted to make it appear that the evaluation process and findings were not biased. This was all done with the full knowledge of key ICANN personnel. Verisgn will keep .net and this was the only possible outcome. If you don't doubt this, then you have no idea how big business operates in America (and elsewhere) - there are many companies like Verisgn, WorldCom, Enron, Arthur Anderson, etc. out there.
