ICANN has started to put incoming correspondence regarding sitefinder on its web site..au’s Chris Disspain writes to Paul Twomey to echo many of the concerns with Sitefinder that have been raised by the SecSAC, and adds a specific focus on the process used (or, rather, not used) when introducing the service.Register.com copies ICANN on a letter its law firm has sent to Verisign’s chief litigation counsel, to protest Verisign’s recently established SiteFinder service and to call upon VeriSign to immediately cease operation of the same. … [T]he SiteFinder service consitutes an abuse of Verisign’s power as the .com and .net registry, deceives the Internet community, confuses domain name registrants, and interferes with the business relation between Register.com and its registrants by means of deceptive acts and practices. The letter then focuses on the impact sitefinder has on registered domain names that have no name servers listed.
