EFF to ICANN's registrars: don't pick up the censor's pen
EFF is speaking out against the increasing use of the domain name system as a mechanism for content censorship during the annual general meeting of ICANN, the global multi-stakeholder regulatory authority for Internet domain names and IP addresses.
Back in August, you may recall that domain name registrars GoDaddy and Google both terminated service to the publisher of the odious Nazi website Daily Stormer, in a move that, while popular, set a dangerous precedent.
