11 October 2007 | Long-dominated by English, the language of its founders, the Internet is about to take a big step toward becoming a truly world-wide Web. Starting on Monday, Web surfers will be able to test Internet addresses in 11 languages that don't use the Roman alphabet — the 26 letters used in English and most other European languages.
10 October 2007 | You won't have noticed, but yesterday the internet's plumbing underwent one of its most fundamental changes in 20 years. The domain name system now supports 11 non-English languages, for the first time in their native non-Roman scripts.
ICANN Featured Individual: Amy Stathos, Senior Counsel, Office of the General Counsel
With nearly thirteen years of litigation experience, Amy Stathos joined ICANN in May 2006 as Senior Counsel, Office of the ICANN General Counsel. Prior to joining ICANN, Amy practiced for several years at Jones Day where she handled complex business and class action litigation with a strong emphasis on both federal and state antitrust and unfair competition matters. Her extensive litigation experience with many national and international clients, such major retailers, telecommunications companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, health care providers, oil and gas producers and manufacturers and suppliers in the aerospace industry, makes her extremely well-qualified for her position with ICANN.
In addition to her work with ICANN, Amy has served for over four years on the Editorial Board of the ABA Antitrust Section online publication, The Antitrust Source. Prior to this appointment, Amy served as a vice chairperson of the Civil Practice and Procedure Committee of the ABA Antitrust Section. She also has published on the topic of competition law and been a contributing drafter to Antitrust Law Developments (fifth edition), to the "Annual Updates" of that publication, and to the ABA sponsored Antitrust Evidence Handbook.
