ICANN declines to yank Spamhaus' domain name

SPAMHAUSGood news for Spamhaus today. ICANN issued a statement yesterday stating that they have neither the neither the authority nor ability to suspend a domain registration.

It remains to be seen what, if anything, Tucows will do with the court order if it's issued.

at least one good twist to this story. I don't think Canadian-based TuCows will disable for some judgement made in the US in favor of a documented spammer.

Real good news. If they ruled the other way, it would affect the whole internet in a real scary way. But I still think ICANN has to be moved to VN or something like that, a whole (trigger happy) country should not control the internet imho.
