    Re: Corinithians Reversed: Federal Court WIPO UDRP

    Why do people continue to try to place WIPO
    on some pedestal by calling WIPO "an agency
    of the United Nations" ?

    WIPO is a private company, just like ICANN, with
    no authority to do anything, except laugh all the
    way to the bank at the people who pay them
    for their scams.
