Jonathan Weinberg Interviewed on ICANN-Verisign Lawsuit

Topic: Lawsuits and Judicial Decisions

Circle ID has a nice interview with ICANNWatch editor Jonathan Weinberg about the ICANN-Verisign lawsuit -- its causes, clauses, and consequences.

My favorite quote is at the end:

up until now, VeriSign and ICANN have maintained a facade of cooperation -- they may not have liked each other, but they had to live with each other. VeriSign has now dropped the facade. There are dangers a-plenty. If VeriSign should win this lawsuit, it will be empowered to make unilateral changes in the COM and NET registries that will be harmful to the DNS as a whole. If ICANN should prevail, it may be emboldened to extend regulation and micro-management far beyond where they're warranted. The most likely possibility is that the parties will settle, and we'll continue going down to hell in a hand-basket, much as we've been all along.
