ICANN logo Oversight of the internet domain system will remain with the U.S. awhile longer.

In a blog post yesterday, the U.S. Commerce Department announced it would renew its contract with the Internet Corp. for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for one year to September 30, 2016. The department also said it has "options to extend the contract for up to three additional years if needed".

Some reports are reading policital implications into the announcement. But Assistant Commerce Secretary Lawrence Strickling said the delay is simply due to the need for more time to prepare plans and have them approved by the U.S. Government.
