  Well here we go again!  Another one! >:)

"According to Peter Sunde's Twitter feed, he
has been http://twitter.com/brokep/status/8779363872935936
suspicious of ICANN for a long time. The non-profit
corporation is tasked with managing both the IPv4 and IPv6 address spaces
as well as handling the management of top-level domain name space
including the operation of root nameservers. Sunde has 
lost a domain in the past because of the way ICANN acted. It was 
taken without any consultation on their part, instead the 
organization relied on information from recording industry group 
IFPI to change the domain ownership. But it seems for some reason 
his frustration has come to a head recently, and he has 
 put a call out for help to create a
competing root server."
