    Friends-
    The war rages on. A private company wants its own Internet Kill Switch: Verisign controls the assignment of .com and .net domain names -- and makes nearly $700 million each year to do it. Now it's seeking the power to take down websites whenever governments wants them censored.

    It could implement the Internet Blacklist Bill that's pending before Congress. And it could help governments censor political speech abroad -- or, eventually, here in the United States.

    The group that regulates domain name assignments -- and would need to approve Verisign's request -- is called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN.

    Will you urge ICANN to reject Verisign's request for its own Kill Switch? Just click here:

    Well I don't think that Verisign should have a Kill Switch... Anyone think differently?
