Iperdome to Organize Netizens for Internet Governance

ATLANTA, April 22, 1999 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc., the company offering Personal Domain Name services under the .per(SM) name and Top Level Domain (TLD), has formed the Personal Domain Name Holders Association (http//www.pdnha.org ), a new organization designed to give individuals a voice in the legislative branch of ICANN.  Specifically, the PDNHA will continue the fight for fair and open processes, the protection of minority interests, and most importantly, the protection of civil liberties.

According to Jay Fenello, President of Iperdome and the interim Executive Director for the PDNHA, "U.S. citizens have come to expect certain rights and civil liberties from our government.  Unfortunately, this unique American perspective has collided with the governance philosophies found in the other 240+ countries throughout the world.  Consequently, many of our most closely held beliefs about governance have not been incorporated into ICANN.  Things like no taxation without representation, due process, consent of the governed, etc.

The PDNHA will continue the fight for these truly American values, not just for Americans, but for all Netizens of the world."

Netizens who believe in traditional American values, who own a Personal Domain Name (i.e. Yourname.com), and who wish to participate in Internet Governance are encouraged to join.
