[ga] Newsflash: Progress on .EU


European Union ministers signed off on a plan Monday to establish ".eu" as an 
Internet domain suffix, hoping a pan-European address will spur electronic 
commerce in Europe.

Adoption by the EU telecoms ministers allows the EU's head office, the 
European Commission, to select a private, nonprofit organization to manage 
".eu" and establish procedures to handle disputes.

Any plan ultimately needs the approval of the Internet Corporation for 
Assigned Names and Numbers, the organization selected by the U.S. government 
in 1998 to oversee domain names.

ICANN already has tentatively approved the creation of ".eu," but final 
approval will come only after the group works out contractual details with 
the yet-to-be-named ".eu" management organization.
