    However UN WIPO on the Internet is illegal
    by WIPOorgUK on Sunday June 06 2004, @12:41AM (#13709)

    They are paid to aid and abet their business customers in the overreach of trademarks.

    This is in violation of trademark and competition law.

    They are supposed to be independent and objective - but guess where most of their income comes from.

    Corrupt UN WIPO know that words and initialisms do not belong solely to one company - in fact, many share them. Indeed, anybody can use them for any legal purpose they wish.

    The .KKK does give ICANN Triple Karma
    by Anonymous on Sunday June 06 2004, @04:13AM (#13710)
    The tag team of Krocker, Klemson and Krocker (the .KKK) are the Taliban Society thugs used to enforce the ICANN Party Line.

    They are actually proud of what they do and have been getting away with it for over 30 years. They view that as some sort of mandate to continue their behavior.

    Civil society can not really fathom how the Internet is built on a foundation of primitive tribal customs. They think the Internet comes from the Fone Company or the Guvernmunt.

    Several times each year, the .KKK put on their robes and gather in large numbers, in obscur places they select. They are actually proud of the fact that hotels regularly ask them to use the back loading-dock, service entrance, so-as not to scare the other guests.

    As Civil Society becomes more educated, they learn what has been going on, and they start to take steps, to try to ensure, their networks are safe from the .KKK. "Watching" is only part of the solution, there is also "Work" that has to be done, on a 24x7 basis.

    Education is the key to making people aware of the past history, the current concerns, and the way forward to keep the .NET open, free and out of the hands of the .KKK. You can not count on the groupies and bimbos that follow the .KKK on their road-trips. You are better off sticking close to home and protecting your own piece of cyberspace. That may require new hardware and new software, which the .KKK will assail as snake-oil that they do not endorse. Of course they do not endorse it, they want to continue to have their way with the .NET and want to make sure their funding continues.

    Follow the money and the .KKK as they continue their mission of domination of netizens around the world.
