Network Solutions Hit with $1.7 Bil Class Action Lawsuit
from the domain-registration-fees-illegal? dept
A class action suit has been filed against Network Solutions for collecting domain registration fees. Basically, the suit says that Network Solutions broke its contract with the government by not clearly making sure that people and companies who reserved names in the .com, .net, and .org space fit the types of companies that those names were set up for. It sounds like they’re looking for $1.7 billion on a technicality, but who knows.

I hadn’t heard that point made before. I realized long ago that NSI had basically merged all three top level domains into one, but didn’t realize it could have been in breach of contract.
Cool. I’d love to see them taken to the cleaners.
Could we also sue them for moving the WhoIS URL? 😎
