"US govt interference is a big deal, says Europe"

Regarding the statement by the Dept. of Commerce a
couple of weeks ago, as John Leyden writes in The
Register this morning, it has a few poeple upset:

"Despite an increasing number of newspaper articles-
all from US media organisations-claiming that the
internet community is happy to let the US government
continue its role, a recent meeting of registries
from across Europe begs to differ."


And althought everyone knew this would rankle a lot
of people, there's no shortage of comments about it
over on /.

ps. And, ironicallt, all of this is boiling up during ICANN's
meeting in Luxembourg this week...
