.IE domain to be managed by Comreg.

The .IE domain registry authority (IEDR) which up until now managed the .ie internet domain has been relieved of its absolute autonomy. Last month (May 2004) the Dept of Communications and Marine announced that regulation of the domain would be transferred to Comreg.
Legislation is currently being drafted by the dept to enable this transfer. There are about 40,000 .ie domains registered. A new bill is also being drafted to introduce tough new regulations with regards to the use of the .ie domain. A breach of these regulations could result in a €2000 fine.
