NSI in breach of ICANN deal?

[Editor's note: As I understand it -- someone correct me if I'm wrong, please -- as a legal matter what they are selling is a contract to renew annually for 90 years. Being a registrar they can't actually sell registrations for longer than the registry will provide them. And that's 10 years. So while I think many of the other points in this item are well taken, I don't think there's an ICANN rules issue here in that orther registries could offer the same service. But again, please correct me if I'm wrong....-mf]

You are right. GNR even advertised the coming of .name in the second level with words that do not conform to their agreement with icann.
