Fight brewing over .MLS Web domain

Operator of opposes application by group of 54 MLSs

A total of 54 MLSs representing more than half of U.S. MLS subscribers have joined the MLS Domains Association, which was formed in 2010 and plans to apply this year to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to create and manage the ".MLS" top-level domain.
