VeriSign May Ditch Domain Deal
By Aaron Pressman
"...after failing to reach agreement, the parties recessed for the day and agreed to meet again Wednesday, according to
people familiar with the talks.
"On Tuesday, the sources said VeriSign, based in Mountain View, Calif., was even considering whether it should simply
walk away from the latest deal with ICANN, under which it would manage registration of the ".com" domain until at least
2007, relinquish control of the ".org" domain next year and run the ".net" domain at least until 2005."
This is interesting since as of Monday night the differences being reported were said to be minor.
