ICANN has nothing to do with IANA as Jon Postel driven it...

Note IANA (Internet Asigned Numbers Authority) was a method to avoid

ICANN (Internet Coporation for Asigned NAMES and Numbers) is
completely different:
It is a corporation (not an "authority"), it matters about namespaces
(not only numbers),
and i think Jon Postel is screaming and crying from his thomb...

ICANN, in my humble opinion, dont have any kind of legal authority:
It is only a "stock market", and all the stock markets belongs to the
same savage capitalist regime.

"First come first own" was the rule since 25 years...

But there is no social agreement capitalism could not transgrede for profit...

PD: Luckily free world dont need these "institutions" at all...

Another thing is what is the correct way to fight with them...

I think the answer is: Open Technology.
