Washington Post: ICANN Threatens To Revoke VeriSign’s Right To Sell Dot-Com Names

The world’s largest retailer of top-level Internet addresses could lose its right to sell “dot-com” domain names if it fails to address accusations that it violated its contract with global Internet addressing authorities.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which manages the Internet’s global addressing system, today accused VeriSign Inc. of failing to comply with its accreditation agreements, citing 17 separate violations over the past 18 months.

ICANN’s breach notification letter to VeriSign on this subject is available here along with a press release on the subject.
