Porn Domain Firm Sues US Government

By Kevin Murphy

ICM Registry LLC, the company behind the proposed .xxx internet porn domain, will today sue two departments of the US government for access to documents it claims show the US pressured ICANN into rejecting the domain.

The suit is expected to allege that the documents released to ICM so far show that the US “exerted undue political influence on ICANN’s consideration of the .xxx domain application”, and that the redactions were unlawful under FOIA.
