    Re: AMERICA ONLINE, ICANN, NAF AND UDRP PANEL

    "I" represent a group of friends and associates collectively called "ANNO DOMIN 2000" - we have had correspondence with the FTC over AOL dating back to before AOL's merger with Time Warner, most recently in respect of their repeated "harassment" of me without "good cause" or "good faith."

    Oh, BTW, I've already been bankrupted by AOL's spurious UDRP claim, so I've got nothing to lose.

    My friends and colleagues are backing me.

    So will more than half of the Internet Community when they get to read ALL of my evidence (ie, my Appendices/Supplementary Submission, which damns AOL beyond repair.)

    I guess you must not have had very much money to begin with, if a UDRP case was sufficient to bankrupt you... given that the UDRP is incapable of assessing monetary damages, and there is no requirement to have an attorney in order to respond, the necessary expenses of defending yourself in such a proceeding are limited to copying and postage costs for the hardcopy submissions; in your case you incurred additional costs to elect a three member panel and to make supplementary submissions that ended up being ignored, but the amounts involved are hardly enough to bankrupt a healthy business. If you are that short in funds, the desirability of spending as much as you did on spurious .name registrations is rather questionable, I would think. How do you intend to pay the legal and travel expenses necessary to pursue the legal case you claim you're undertaking?
