I know Jim Wagner, the author of this article is on this list, so I'll
address this here.  There is a serious issue with the accuracy of what
is being reported on here.

ICANN is NOT the operator of the .jp top level domain.  Japan Registry
Service Corporation (JPRS) is the new operator, after a redelegation
from JPNIC, and this type of redelegation requires ICANN approval.


All ICANN did is approve of the transition.  And that's all the press
release above says as well.   The article Sotiris provided the link to
above grossly misstates what happened and what the press release was

I'd also recommend using quotes from someone more familiar with the
ccTLD community rather than Judith Oppenheimer.  Anyone with some
understanding of the process would have been able to point this out
and help avoid the problem with the accuracy of the article.
