Unrelenting assholes

Its hard to believe but VeriSign is suing ICANN over SiteFinder. In idiotic statements by VeriSign representatives it says that "This brazen attempt by ICANN (news - web sites) to assume 'regulatory power' over VeriSign's business is a serious abuse of ICANN's technical coordination function,". ICANN does regulate the assignment of names and control VeriSigns franchise to manage the com/net zone. It's been a while since I have seen such a die hard attempt at commercial suicide. VeriSigns contract will come up for review. Nobody is interested in Sitefinder except VeriSign and by suing they have virtually guaranteed a grassroots campaign to take away the management franchise from them or at least to tighten the terms and conditions enoug to kill Sitefinder for good.
