ICANN fires back with stern threat of legal action...again

ICANN still shooting blanks?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Lisbon 2007 Without any fanfare, or even notice of an ongoing lawsuit against itself, ICANN posted another letter to RegisterFly on Wednesday giving it notice (again) of an intent to pursue legal action against the disintegrating registrar.

This was not posted in the blog section, where one would expect to find it these days - it was buried in the correspondence page. The letter once again threatens legal consequences against the wayward registrar if it does not shape up.

If it sounds like you've read this before, you have. Only two weeks ago, ICANN had its high-powered attorneys at Jones Day fire off a similar letter, which has led (if ICANN's much-touted new website is to be believed) to another...letter.

It almost makes one wonder if ICANN is in such a sorry state it can only afford to have Jones Day do its correspondence, rather than its real legal work. ®
