the power to issue addresses
In addition to questioning the Internet Society's fiscal fitness, both Hansen and Bakel charged that ICANN staff were biased in favor of granting dot-org's management to a nonprofit organization.
Well, DUH! I can't see how anyone could think of giving it to anything but
a non-profit! In fact, now that I think of it, Your physical address is
issued by a government body, not a business. Why should internet
addresses be any different? If I live at 290 Mountain Lake Drive, should I
be able to go to an auction and buy 10 Downing Street instead?
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

maybe we are witnessing a shift of power in our time? big business are now able to pass laws in their own interests. like, making it illegal for anyone own a dvd copier that is capible of copying a movie dvd...
Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!

I think you hit the nail on the head, (V)/ \ If the people who elect the clowns don't start speaking up, big business is going to keep on doing what they're doing. Money talks, but if they're booted out of office the money stops.
