ICANN RESPONDS TO DOT-AERO OBJECTIONS
ICANN has responded to accusations that the air travel
industry is improperly limiting public access to the
recently commissioned .aero Internet domain.  While the
understanding with .aero has always been that it would be
restricted to members of the air travel and transport
community, airline consumer advocate and author Edward
Hasbrouck earlier this month urged members of the ICANN
board to demand hearings on the .aero contract with the
Societe Internationale de Telecommunications Aeronautiques
(SITA), the group chosen to operate .aero.  Hasbrouck argues
that the draft text would unfairly exclude consumers and
other non-commercial entities within the air travel
community from registering .aero addresses.  Response at

WHILE REGISTER.COM WON'T TELL
Although there has been consistent pressure from the IP
community for full disclosure of domain name registrants
within the WHOIS database, Register.com is now offering a
service that runs counter that approach.  ICANN.Blog reports
that it now offers an "account masking" service to its
larger corporate clients, enabling them to hide their
ownership of a domain name.  The issue came to light when
searching for the owner of altriasucks.com, the renamed
Philip Morris.
