The controversy comes to an end. The NYT reports that representatives from the United States and nations that had sought to break up some of its control over the Internet reached an accord that leaves the supervision of domain names and other technical resources unchanged. They agreed instead to an evolutionary approach to Internet management. But the accord, a document of principles that delegates from more than 100 countries worked out here after more than two years of sometimes fiery argument, also established a new international forum intended to give governments a stronger voice in Internet policy issues, including the address system, a trade-off that the Americans were willing to accept. The Internet, a largely decentralized way of linking many computer networks and retrieving data almost instantly, is dependent on a centralized master file that decodes its address scheme. That master file is under Icann's jurisdiction. The text also defines Internet governance as "more than Internet naming and addressing," including public policy issues like the security and safety of the Internet, as well as developmental issues, affordability, reliability and quality of service.
