Olympics Continues Threatening ICANN Because It Won't Block All Olympics-Related Terms
from the fetchez-la-vache dept
ICANN's response was to more or less tell the IOC to go pound sand. So, it appears that the Olympics are back and threatening a lawsuit again. I say, let them. I doubt the IOC wants to actually test it's bizarre and blatantly expansionist interpretation of intellectual property laws in any court. The various lawyers who represent the IOC must know that it will lose and lose badly. That's why it's been threatening for months with no actual lawsuits being filed. You can even see this in the latest threat, where the IOC complains that it filed 11 comments on ICANN's policies and every one has been ignored. It seems that ICANN might want to continue this policy and see if it can call the IOC's bluff here.
