ICANN boss to step away after expanding power of org

ICANN logoThe chief executive of the Internet Corp. for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) plans to leave his post within a year. Under his tenure, ICANN has increased both it's power and it's international presence--including the added ability to render non-Latin alphabets.

His tenure also found controversy with brands and governments. For one, ICANN sought to be kind to pornographic websites by providing an .XXX domain extension. Additionally, ICANN sought to expand the number of generic top-level domains, but some governments felt left out of the process--also many corporate brand managers are not happy with the move--as it could threaten their brand's presence online.
