Notably, not one stakeholder formally objected in delivering the transition plan to NTIA in March, according to testimony by Steve DelBianco of NetChoice. Human-rights groups, trade organizations representing Internet companies and national-security experts – such as former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff – all have signed off on the transition. NetChoice, The Internet Association, the Computer and Communications Industry Association, the Software and Information Industry Association and the Internet Infrastructure Coalition issued a joint statement supporting the Oct. 1 transition. Civil-society groups – including the Center for Democracy & Technology, Access Now, Public Knowledge and New America’s Open Technology Institute – have also expressed their support.
