Culminating a year-long policy development process, ICANN today launched its new Blocking Usage Review Panel (BURP). The BURP provides long-needed oversight over services that block Internet traffic.
"While everyone understands that national laws such as the U.S. CAN SPAM define what traffic is or is not elegible to block, legal processes can be slow and cumbersome," said a spokeswoman. "Since the Internet is global and traffic often traverses multiple countries, the array of different laws cause uncertainty."

Every once in a while, when I come across a domain whose WHOIS is particularly bad, I send it in to ICANN's WDPRS reporting system. So here is the entire entry for the domain ename.net:
Domain Name : ename.net
Registrant : kongdejing
Domain Name Server : dns1.iidns.com dns2.iidns.com dns3.iidns.com dns4.iidns.com dns5.iidns.com dns6.iidns.com
查看完整whois请到:http://whois.ename.net/ename.net For more information,please go to: http://whois.ename.net/ename.net(If you visit that web site, it's not much more informative, other than saying that the registrant is ENAME TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD.)

According to a filing with the SEC, the Department of Commerce renewed the .COM agreement for six more years.The renewal was held up until the last minute (the old agreement expires today) due to antitrust concerns, specifcally about pricing. The main change in the new agreement is that Verisign is no longer allowed to increase the price above the existing $7.85, except under some unlikely conditions such as an extremely expensive security problem, or Verisign persuades the government that the .COM domain is no longer dominant.
