    Yep, time to bring in the U.S. Senate, the FCC and the FTC and all 48 of the State Governments.

    ICANN did NOT get the job done. ICANN is history, just like the IAHC.

    What do people expect from the Clinton-Gore ICANN ?

    "promote policies that open ICT markets and encourage competition."

    Certainly not ICANN. They restrain trade and
    lock people into their ISOC and RIR pyramid scheme.

    "The Office of International Affairs (OIA) develops and implements policies to enhance U.S. companies’ ability to compete globally in the information technology and communications (ICT) sectors. In consultation with other U.S. agencies and the U.S. private sector, OIA participates in international and regional fora to promote policies that open ICT markets and encourage competition."
