More ICANN Lawsuits Planned

Tucows has published a lengthy statement on the proposed ICANN-VeriSign settlement agreement. An excerpt: "Of substantial concern to Tucows is the clear message that this proposal sends to the global community. By rewarding Verisign in this matter, the ICANN staff is clearly signaling that the United States legal system is now the preferred mechanism for effecting ICANN policy changes. The outcome will be two-fold; ICANN will have traded one lawsuit for many – there is no shortage of actions being prepared in anticipation of this settlement being implemented – and; the global community will be further alienated by the actions of ICANN’s staff."
