Internet Domain Name System Must Face Challenges
<http://www.nationalacademies.org/topnews/>
March 31 -- The domain name system that helps users find their way across
the Internet by substituting user-friendly names for computer-friendly
addresses, has performed well, says a report from the National Academies’
Computer Science and Telecommunications Board. However, the report
emphasizes that the system should be managed by a non-governmental
organization, and not be used for broader purposes like controlling spam,
protecting intellectual property rights, or regulating e-commerce.
