The United States has no such authority now.
Any authority which the United States has (within the US) remains the same.

Yes. I read the OP.
It's nonsense.

I would think, if these Attorney Generals' from four states believed everything on that site then they wouldn't be suing

So? You know there are 50 states, right?
In any case, there isn't much they can do about it. ICANN is an independent body which has always been "multinational."

Good thread and very pertinent to small businesses
everywhere, including free speech advocates, G. BUMP!
My concern is that only FOUR states got it... and filed.

I call this at the individual level just as potentially nasty
as having your broadcast station licensing governed by
a group that can, and has before denied that privilege
for reasons other than the obvious... like content of
a nature unfavorable to the grantor.

Now consider the UN an institution above politics...
and you may empathize with my skepticism.

The US government has had no exclusive say in internet naming. Not before, and not after the transition. Quite unlike the FCC, for example.

Of Course Anything you don't Agree with or Acknowledge as a Fact has to be Nonsense right Mr. BooTae ?

Thanks Phage. I've read about both sides now and I've got to say, it seems to me to be a lot of something about nothing.

Just more water cooler fodder and mud for people to sling.

It appears to be these suits are for local voters consumption to show they are on the peoples side, but they picked a less than honest way to go about it.

Nonsense is something that makes no sense. The claims of the AGs make no sense. They seem to be entirely ignorant of the role and scope of ICANN.

Like Me , they are Americans , and Real Americans do not Concede Anything without a Consensus of Public Opinion . President Obama does Not have the Authority to Give Away American Property without Congressional Approval Period .

ICANN is not US property.
It is a non-profit corporation.

Period.

Maybe this will make sense.

Many fear this will allow governments such as Russia, China and Iran to have a stake in Internet governance and the “de facto” power to tax domain names and stifle free speech.

If this is such a "non-issue", why is the U.N. so hungry to get the change?

Millions of dollars spent for what?

You mean Ted Cruz? Yeah, he knows a lot about how it works. That isn't how it works.

Do you think that means it is US government property?

I guess the Trump Foundation is US government property too, then.
