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.
