Re: United States Says No! Internet is Ours!

Am I the only one who is ROFLMAO about this? There is nothing

> preventing other nations and/or organizations from setting up their > own root servers

Except the fact that many Internet users' computers won't even recognize them. Nameservers are hard-wired to look up TLDs and SLDs using specific root servers, and for them to use other root servers you're going to have to have a huge number of ISPs, etc., change etheir NS configurations.

It amazes me how much press this issue has gotten recently.

It shouldn't.
