As a followup to my last post its been announced that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has approved a plan to creat a .xxx domain for porn. Its surprising that it took them this long. The firm ICM Registry Inc. will sell .xxx addresses, and is expected to sell them for 60 dollars a year, roughly ten times higher than other firms charge for dot com names. Porn sites are a reported twelve billion dollar industry. Compare this with the budget for Canada's Department of National Defense, which is roughly twelve billion dollars Canadian.
