"Canada has come with a novel way of dealing with URL disputes. From 1 November it has decided to tear up all its country's domain names and start again"

It's crazy. I don't even want to think about how many people are gonna lose domains because of this. I can see some logic it and because I'm aware it may actually benefit me but think of all those companies that no longer have their original webmaster under employ. There's gonna be a lot of companies that are gonna wake up one morning with a domain.

not to mention they are just setting the stage for big time cybersquatting. It's never been easier to swipe a good name...

I have three things to say on this matter: -

STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

There, said it.
