    I've said since IOD wasn't awarded .web that they should sue ICANN. When ICANN morphs into part of, or similar to, the ITU, they won't be subject lawsuits. -g

    From what I recall from the era in which the IOD suits took place, there was never any clear "promise" to let them have .web. Rather, there was a period of chaos where various people and organizations were trying to move in conflicting ways regarding the future development of the domain name system, and sometimes running around like chickens with their heads chopped off, during which some moves were made and aborted by several parties, leading to various beliefs that things would happen that ultimately didn't, but nothing that really seems to be a legally enforceable contract. The CORE (or IAHC) couldn't "steal" .web if nobody owned it in the first place, and at any rate, the IAHC plan in turn collapsed, yet another in a series of "done deal" domain name plans that never happened. ICANN just managed to be the scheme that managed to stick around long enough to actually get some new TLDs into the root, though it might not last much longer now.
