If the USA wants the .com's -- bah, take em. Just to be safe, because of this noise, going forward I'll be registering all domains as .ca just to avoid potential pitfalls down the road. It's not worth the hassle.
I agree with you on replacing .com with something else. Going forward, my domains will be .info. It looks like .info is the only generic choice available for the world public.
I like .ca but European registry don't offer that because .ca is reserved for residents of Canada only.
On a side note, anyone noticed that Microsoft announced they are selling their parked .com names too. Let's get rid of them while they can still get paid a premium for it. The .com will lose favor in the world stage soon. People will realize that they lost control and safeguards over their .com property.
Since linking to a pirate site is an offense, Black Hatters can use the comment section on their competitors' site to post a link and report the site to ICE for violation. Bam! the site gets seized for copyright infringement.
I can hear webmasters shutting off Web 2.0 all over the world.
