Will people who registered through EstDomains be able to transfer their domains to another registrar other than the one ICANN selects? I'm not one of their customers, but I know someone who got suckered into buying a domain through them and the concern now is ICANN will select a registrar who charges rates that are too high. I've always bought my domains from one registrar so despite being on the web forever I know very little about the process of buying/transferring domain names. Thanks.

I wonder why a company should suffer if its president has done something wrong? In economics we studied that a company itself is an entity.
It's part of the contract between the company (the registrar) and ICANN. The text of the letter by ICANN also seems to indicate that having the convicted person removed from office would have solved the problem.
Do you really want to buy your domainames from somebody who's convicted of financial fraud? Remember some domainnames are worth a *lot* of money ...

A lot of domains they hosted appear to be very dodgy - that's one of the reasons why they get shut down. Which registar would want to take on this kind of user-base? Plenty of innocents are sure there as it usually happens, but some of the registars might think that getting their hands on this kind of userbase might be seriously detrimental to their reputation.
