A ridiculous lawsuit, company naming, ICANN, and more.
I was going to write an entire snarky post about this lawsuit (pdf) against GoDaddy. It’s alternately hilarious and, and the end of the day, sad. Basically this former employee sued with a bunch of off-the-wall allegations, such as suffering anxiety and mental anguish because he didn’t know which company employees had stock options in the company. He even said the company promotes violence. His proof: some joker pulled a chair out from under a supervisor as he was sitting down. The plaintiff wants $10 million +. Sigh.
Lego never ceases to amaze me with the volume (and targets) of UDRP filings it makes.
A smart quip from ICA’s Philip Corwin in response to my joke that ICANN should have just had new TLD applicants Fedex their applications.
As I’ve mentioned before, I think ICANN’s technical problems with TAS will result in questions about its ability to execute “digital archery”.
I wonder if NameCheap overtaking GoDaddy on Google for “domain name” has anything to do with all of NameCheap’s +1s on Google.
