    Re: New.net demands that ICANN retract statements
    by Anonymous on Thursday July 26 2001, @04:19PM (#1488)
    This is my opinion.

    Here come the lawyers, old.net must be worse off then I thought. The lawyers are usually the clean up crew. A way to sue someone to recoup some of your investments. We failed because of ICANN...


    I still don't understand why anyone would register a old.net domain.

    1. Why put time into branding a domain that you don't know if the people that you want to see it can?

    2. They can shut down the system at anytime?

    3. There are and will be a ton of names available in .com .net .org .biz .info ...

    4. You would have to agree to stuff like this:


    http://www.new.net/policies_registration.tp


    Transfer of Domain Name Ownership.

    "New.net shall have the right to immediately, and without prior notice, terminate this Agreement and/or suspend, cancel, transfer or modify your registration of the Domain Name."


    Registrant's Representations and Warranties./

    You represent and warrant that:
    "in the event New.net suspends, cancels, transfers or modifies your registration of your Domain Name or terminates this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9, you agree (without implying any limitation to the general applicability of Section 3 to the other parts of this Agreement) that you shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid by you to New.net."



    New.net Makes No Representations and Warranties./

    "ALL DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION SERVICES PROVIDED BY NEW.NET UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS."

    "IN ADDITION, NEW.NET MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING ANY MINIMUM NUMBER OF USERS WHO WILL HAVE ACCESS TO NEW.NET DOMAIN NAMES."


    Policy Modifications./

    If you do not agree with any such modification, your sole remedy is to terminate this Agreement (thereby canceling your registration of the Domain Name) by providing New.net with notice of your intention to terminate this Agreement. Notice of your termination shall be effective upon New.net's receipt of such notice.
