[ NNSquad ] ICANN takes over Timezone database

ICANN takes over Timezone database

http://j.mp/qVkL7C  (AP / Bellingham Herald)

    "The organization in charge of the Internet's address system is taking
     over a database widely used by computers and websites to keep track of
     time zones around the world.  The transition to the Internet
     Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, comes a week
     after the database was abruptly removed from a U.S. government server
     because of a federal lawsuit claiming copyright infringement."

Note that this has no obvious, direct effect on the lawsuit potential.
