The future of internet domain regulator Icann hangs in the balance as a US government consultation closes this week.
...
An amendment signed in 2003 set out 24 tasks to be completed to allow Icann to become completely independent and have full control over the US root server infrastructure.

But the memorandum is set to expire on September 30 and a consultation on future arrangements, launched earlier this year by the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration, will close on July 7.
