ACCC vs ING adjourned

Filed under: Internet Name Group — Josh @ 8:48 pm

I went and watched the ACCC vs ING case this morning.

It has been adjourned for 10 days, until May 6th at 2:15pm.

The judge has made some orders which I’ll post to the list once I get the exact wording confirmed.

Apart from that, I saw Mark Spektor, Sasha Sudakov and some other ING people, who all wore nice suits and used lots of brill cream.

Domain cop chases ING over .bz “invoices”

Domain cop chases ING over .bz “invoices”
http://www.itnews.com.au/story.cfm?ID=9554

” …

Domain name regulator auDA is set to target domain name registrar Internet Name Group over unsolicited and potentially misleading letters calling for businesses to register .bz addresses.

The letters, which resemble invoices, are in some instances sent to businesses’ accounts departments and warn that the company’s .bz domain name has not been registered.

ING has already earned the ire of auDA over mailing out similar letters, which resembled invoices, telling domain name owners their .com.au addresses are about to expire. ING has been directed by auDA to ensure it adheres to the interim code of conduct for domain name registrars with respect to .com.au addresses.

AuDA chief Chris Disspain voiced concern at the latest ING marketing campaign, particularly because the letters are being sent to accounts departments, and confirmed the regulator will be investigating the matter.
