Internet & Networking The relationship between the United States government and ICANN, the private non-profit corporation which oversees the assignment of domain names, has often been a thorn in the eyes of the European Union. A recent document issued by the European Commission again advocates a change in internet oversight - but at the same time, the document also states that ICANN has actually been doing a pretty good job.

So far the ICANN has been doing a good job as i can tell. We have unicode characters in domain names (see for example http://卐.com/). The bad thing is the bad ipv4 allocation, but the mistakes were made before anybody could know the internet would be this big.

Normally i would say that an international body should handle cross border issues. In this case the ICANN is doing such a fine job this is not really needed.I don't like all the new wierd TLD's, but that's about it.

I agree. This just seems like a solution looking for a problem.
