ICANN Takes Over Time Zone Database; Dares Astrolabe To Sue
from the relax,-we've-got-it dept
Late last week, however, ICANN announced that it was taking over the time zone database and would continue to maintain it. It also wasted no time effectively daring Astrolabe to sue it:
"We are aware of the lawsuit," [Kim Davies, a technical manager at ICANN] said. "We believe it's important to continue the operation of the database. We'll deal with any legal matters as they arise."In other words: Hey Astrolabe, try suing us, because we're ready for you.
