Network Solutions Sued.

Posted on 26 February 2008 by Lord Brar

Finally. They had it coming on them.

I raised this issue at ICANN New Delhi atleast 5-6 times. Even Steve DelBianco from NetChoice raised an issue similar to mine.

I would have loved to see Mike Rodenbaugh’s proposal for non-refundable ICANN Fee being adopted instantly but it seems no one was interested in taking any action about it as they needed more time to “think” about the issue.

Let’s hope that NetSol stops this unethical and unfair trade practice.

Posted on 09 February 2008 by Lord Brar

I left Jaipur today morning and reached Delhi for ICANN New Delhi. Jaipur-Delhi is a frequent transit for me but this particular trip was different as my driver insisted that I stop by his village — which was on the way.

Take a look at what I shot!

Anyway, I am off to hit the hay. I will be going for an Agra trip tomorrow. Conference starts the day after. Stay tuned for some great pics and coverage.
