VeriSign Loses Out To ICANN

from the that-didn't-go-far dept

Not even bothering to let the case go to trial, a judge has simply tossed out VeriSign's lawsuit against ICANN with a ruling that can be summarized as "you guys have to be kidding me, if you think I'm going to buy that." Still, VeriSign could refile the case, and there really are some interesting legal issues raised by the case, concerning how much power ICANN really does (or should) have.

    Wow!

    Some one actually showed some common sense there! *Marks it off in the "What I want to see before I die" list*

    No Subject Given

    ICANN were totally useless to me when TotalNIC stole a whole bunch of my domains.

    Personally I don't think they have enough power, or if they do, then they have to cover their butts so much that they dare not use it.

    So what use are they?
