I'm uncertain if it's correct to say that VeriSign currently "controls" .edu -- I believe they provide free services for it, but I don't know who currently makes policy; I don't think VeriSign claims that right, though, does it?

I think one of the more interesting aspects of this is that the links are ... old. EDUCAUSE has been lying low for a while...perhaps (sensibly) to wait until the Roberts conflict of interest is out of the way?

So, these questions:

  • What rules apply to the redelegation of gTLDs?
  • Does ICANN have any role?
  • Will there be an open and competitive bidding process?
