New PFF Paper on ICANN Dispute over New ".xxx" Domain

Solveig Singleton and I recently released a short analysis of the ongoing ICANN dispute over the proposed ".xxx" top-level domain (TLD). In our PFF Progress Snapshot, we point out that important issues are raised by the recent effort of the United States to intervene at the last moment and interfere with the creation of this new TLD. I encourage you to read our paper but before you do so, if you need some good background on this issue, I highly recommend that you first visit the Internet Governance Project web page and speficially look at the petition that Prof. Milton Mueller and several other ICANN experts put together on this issue.
