Hearing on "Preserving the Multistakeholder Model of Internet Governance"

Kevin Murphy reporting in DomainIncite: "The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will meet this Wednesday at 1000 local time to grill Chehade and others on the plan to remove the US government from the current triumvirate responsible for managing changes to the DNS root zone under the IANA arrangements. He will be joined by Larry Strickling, who as head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration is the US government's point person on the transition, and Ambassador David Gross, a top DC lawyer formerly with the Department of State."
