As best as I and others have been able to discern, the order in question is
a subpoena to ICANN pertaining to contracts, financial information and
communications with the Iranian government over their names and addresses.
The claims of granted control appear to be inaccurate -- all of the
reporting on the matter have been childish to the extent of saying Dot-Iran
(.ایران) is in Arabic. The next step would be for ICANN to challenge the
request, and one might expect that communities such as this one would have
an opportunity to amicus along the way.
