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.
