Infighting over the introduction of a competitive system for registering internet addresses has hit a new high. Internet address provider Network Solutions Inc (NSI) is crying foul over a decision that reduces its influence on policy matters related to the new domain name system.
The controversy centres on a group called the Names Council, which is made up of representatives from seven groups that have an interest in domain name policy. Interested parties include ISPs (internet service providers), trademark specialists and domain name registries, which are the companies and organisations that control the software and information needed to assign Net addresses.
