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.

Administration’s Internet domain name proposal.
