There's a huge story begging to be reported here. How did Verisign come to have the authority to do this, or did it? When responsibility for DNS serving for .com and .net was handed over by U.S. government authorities years ago, wasn't it done by contracts that keep the control of the actual substance of name serving with some Internet committee?
There's a separate domain registry, right? Isn't there some rule that Verisign has to serve up the information that's in the registry?
