AIM Backs White House Net Domain Name Proposal

The Association for Interactive Media (AIM) voiced its support today for the White House's Green Paper that promotes a privatized Internet domain name registration system.

AIM believes the White House proposal is the best solution to the domain name problem, putting to rest any attempts the International Ad Hoc Committee (IAHC) has made to gain control over the registration system.

The IAHC had proposed its own domain name registration system in Geneva, which, according to AIM, would have threatened U.S. copyright holders' rights on the Internet. The entities Policy Oversight Committee (POC) and the Council of Registrars (CORE) are also affiliated with IAHC.

"We are pleased that Mr. Magaziner was able to see through the IAHC's disinformation campaign and reach a solution that truly benefits the Internet community," said AIM President Andy Sernovitz.

AIM is a trade association for interactive media. It has been strongly promoting a privatized Internet domain name system like the one Magaziner advocates, before Congress, the White House, and to the Internet community.
