Another Lawsuit Filed Against VeriSign, Who Still Refuses To Back Down
from the verisign-everywhere... dept
It seems you can't open up a news page these days without seeing yet another story about VeriSign and their attempt to hijack all misdirected internet traffic. Now that just about everyone is urging them to turn off the system, VeriSign has said they see no reason to do that. Instead, they say they're putting together a committee of "internet leaders" to review the service. Say what? The next time I break the law, do I get to pick a jury of my friends as well? Meanwhile, a second lawsuit has been filed against the service - this time by popular registrar GoDaddy. The suit asks for an injunction forcing VeriSign to stop their SiteFinder hijacking service. Finally, Michael Geist is blaming ICANN for the mess - and everyone who let ICANN become the disaster it is today.
