Verisign, ICANN amend domain agreement
Author: JT Smith
From CNN: VeriSign and ICANN have amended an agreement made two years ago that would have ended VeriSign's control of the .com and .net top level domains by 2004. Now, the once-exclusive registrar has to relinquish that control no later than 2007. Well, sort of: ICANN will also allow VeriSign to continue its management the .com domain after the agreement expires in 2007.
