ICANN approves new "adult" top-level domain: significant to COPA-like laws?

ICANN  (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has approved the “.xxx” top-level domain suffix, the Washington Times reports today with a story by Cheryl Wetzstein, link here

The measure has some significance in the ongoing discussion here about filters and labeling. Conceivably, Congress could try to pass a law requiring some kinds of content to appear only in “
xxx” domains, which parents could block.
