RegisterFly held in contempt of court as injunction is made permanent

Saga appears to be nearing end

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Could the RegisterFly mess be wrapping up at last? That appears to be the case, according to ICANN's blog.

ICANN announced Friday that RegisterFly and CEO Kevin Medina have been held in contempt of court, and that the preliminary injunction issued by United States District Court Judge Manuel L. Real issued on April 26 had been made permanent. RegisterFly and Mr. Medina now have until June 1 to hand over all registrant data to ICANN for transfer to a new registrar, which is rumored to be GoDaddy.com.

The order levies fines of $5,000 per day on RegisterFly and Mr. Medina if they fail to comply with the order on June 1 - approximately 5/6 of a chihuahua at Medina's lofty standards. RegisterFly is also required to publish notice of ICANN's termination of RegisterFly's accreditation on its website within 48 hours.

Kevin Medina actually appeared in court on Friday morning to hear the bad news - a first. We can only hope that Medina is true to his word, and that this sad episode is finally coming to closure.®
