LAWMAKERS PROPOSE DOT-KIDS COMPROMISE
US lawmakers seeking to create a child-friendly Internet
zone said Thursday they would consider setting it up within
an address controlled within the dot-us domain.  The
compromise moves away from a proposal to force ICANN to
create a new dot-kids domain.  Amended language at

COMMERCE DEPARTMENT AWARDS DOT-US TO NEUSTAR
The US Department of Commerce has awarded control of the
dot-us domain to NeuStar Inc., a private company that
intends to limit the suffix to US residents and companies or
other groups with a significant presence in the United
States.  Apparently, the DOC was looking for registry
experience and a willingness to criticize the UDRP.  NeuStar
is a partner in NeuLevel, which has experience running the
dot-biz registry and is currently embroiled in litigation
over allegations of running an illegal lottery.  As for its
views on the UDRP, the NeuStar application includes a
proposal for a new usDRP, modeled after the ICANN UDRP, but
adjusted to fix the flaws that it believes currently favor
domain name registrants at the expense of trademark holders.

WHILE EDUCAUSE GETS DOT-EDU
The Commerce Department also awarded the dot-edu domain to
Educause, a nonprofit group representing college technology
departments.  Educause will expand the domain to allow the
nation's 1,600 community colleges to register for .edu
addresses. The domain has been reserved until now for
four-year colleges and universities.
