Tech News / Re: US takes down Iran-linked news sites, alleges disinformation
Last post by Anon -
Most of the domains seized appeared to be “.net,” “.com” and “.tv” domains. The first two are generic top-level domains as opposed to country-specific domains, while “.tv” is owned by the Pacific island nation of Tuvalu but administered by the U.S. company Verisign. Seizing a domain on a major country-specific top-level domain such as Iran’s “.ir” would be apt to produce widespread international condemnation as a violation of sovereignty.

I don't think they've ever pushed the issue with ICANN. And by that I mean I don't think they've ever tried to claim all domains fall under their jurisdiction since ICANN is based in the USA. The Internet would be ruined if countries could just start revoking domains of other countries it didn't like. I believe the domains have to have some connection to the USA or western world other than ICANN for it to fall under their jurisdiction.

Tech News / Re: US takes down Iran-linked news sites, alleges disinformation

Well, as far as I know all TLDs that are not for countries are administered by ICANN which is a US company so they can be forced. Even ccTLDs are not clear to me. Are they also under ICANN?

Since 2000, ICANN has also been working with managers of ccTLDs (the two-letter TLDs that have been established for countries and some territories) to document their relationship with ICANN. These relationships are more complex, because of the varying circumstances (in terms of type of organization, policies followed, economics, language, culture, legal environment, and relations with governments) of different ccTLDs and the organizations that operate them. An additional factor to be addressed is the role, recognized in the June 1998 U.S. Government White Paper, that national governments have in "manag[ing] or establish[ing] policy for their own ccTLDs."

Interestingly, the .ir domain was not taken down in this situation. Only the .com and I think .org.
