Have been wondering recently about the effect closer EU integration might have on UK domainers. Whether individually we may happen to be pro-EU or Eurosceptic, we can probably agree that the EU is growing ever closer, with financial and even political union possible. What does this mean for UK domainers? Could it mean the eventual removal from Nominet of responsibility for .uk domains, with oversight being given to a pan-European institution? Could full political union mean the rescinding of all .uk domains? What would this mean for us? Of course the above questions rest on the assumption that the UK will remain in the EU. But if the UK does, what should we do as domainers to prepare for these possibilities? If the above are possible should we, as a result, argue against Britain's participation in closer union? I know this is a long way off, and I know that closer integration may not result in the scenarios I've described, but I think it's essential the debate is had just in case. Oh, and I'm not trying to push one point of view on Europe or the other... just wondering what thoughts anyone else has. Mike.
