"It's time to place the Internet in Safer Hands"
(David Rowan)

   "Rod Beckstrom [ICANN President], meanwhile, is stoking up his
    sales pitch. "Time is short," he told a Beijing event last month.
    "If you have not done so, now is the time to get expert advice and
    get your marketing people engaged to take advantage of new
    opportunities. If you need help there are many companies around
    the world that offer this service."  And don't think you can
    simply ignore that golden $185,000 opportunity - who knows which
    rivals could damage your business by getting there first? "If you
    do not choose to apply," he said, "you should still pay attention
    to those who do, and use the protections built into the program to
    safeguard your brand or community."
    But those former ICANN executives I've spoken to are outraged
    that the body they once held dear is pursuing what they see as a
    coldly greedy strategy that will confuse consumers, encourage
    cybersquatting, and serve the interests of those who profit from
    domain name registration."
