This has been a long time coming

A judge in Texas has rejected a last-ditch legal challenge to halt the final handover of internet naming power from the US government to a non-profit group.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) has administered the naming system since 1998. But from Saturday it will operate without the ultimate oversight of the US government.
Four US states filed a joint motion on Thursday in an attempt to block the handover from going ahead, arguing it could disrupt freedom of speech.

Folks are naturally wary of change but there have been times when certain decisions where made in respect  of US intelligence interests that caused consternation from both European nations and many others, a free internet might be a fine future or a good intentioned failure but its best to give it a try as in the end it has to be something that delivers unity of purpose, currently theres a trust deficit that's been around for some time.
