Well, It's About Time ICANN

A press release from Iron Mountain says that ICANN has now formally chosen them as the escrow agent for the Registrar Data Escrow program. So now, only six and a half short years and one highly public registrar collapse after the mandatory escrow was put into the registrar agreement, ICANN has finally gotten around to setting it up.

The next question is whether the registrars will actually make the escrow deposits, and what if anything will ICANN do when they don't. The big responsible registrars will, of course, but the marginal ones most likely not to escrow are the ones most likely to collapse. Stay tuned for the next exciting chapter.
