+ - It's Official: Registrars cannot hold domains hostage without a court order->

Submitted by Stunt Pope
Stunt Pope (3287) writes "Back when the City of London Police issued those "takedown requests" to domain registrars, most complied but as previously reported here, easyDNS didn't. So a bunch of the taken down domains wanted to move to easyDNS. One problem: their registrar wouldn't let them.

It took awhile but easyDNS fought it, and finally got a ruling under the ICANN policy that ordered the hostage domains transferred."
