"A federal appellate court ruled against Web registry Network Solutions
Inc., comparing Internet domain names to property such as homes and cars,
and saying that the Web registry could be liable for damages after a
convicted forger purloined ownership of from an e-commerce


"But the judge and plaintiff questioned why NSI would switch the domain name
registry without so much as a phone call to Kremen. They also questioned why
NSI administrators weren't suspicious of Cohen's letter, which requested

have Internet access -- despite being named Online Classifieds."
