Re: <nettime> Company claims ownership of 482 new gTLDs


Waaaaoooow! The Return of Paul Garin! (is he still around?) Name.Space was
indeed the first thing I tought about when the Unifiedroot story came up:

(post to the hippies list)

Owner Erik Seeboldt makes a lot of noise, but I don't see any difference
with Paul Garin's 'name.space' project (which flopped)

http://www.unifiedroot.com/

(it's a company with an 'agitated' past anyway...)
(eg
http://tweakers.net/nieuws/41757/olsthoorn-onderzoekt-unifiedroot-en-unidt-zaak.html
- in D-Dutch)

Name.Space says:

"We hope we can resolve all of this amicably," said Mashinsky. "We're
   not trying to throw a monkey wrench into the process."

Well, I guess they don't have the very deep pockets needed to litigate
against ICANN ...

Cheers, p+4D!
