Internet Oversight Board Approves ".cat," Defers on ".xxx"

'The Internet's key oversight agency approved a domain name for Catalan language and culture Thursday, while deferring final action for the second time in as many months on creating an Internet red-light district through the controversial ".xxx" suffix. Proponents say the domain could help the porn industry clean up its act by forcing .xxx sites to avoid trickery such as spamming and malicious scripts; opponents object to providing another channel for porn distribution.'
