Indeed this is true. But it could be made to LOOK differently in a court
of law. Couple that with the fact that Chris dropped his case, will weigh
to some unknown degree on the judges mind, should Chris and IOD,
decides to revisit this matter in court. BTW, I doubt that they will. Also,
BTW, I offered to Chris at one point some very good legal assistance
from our corp attny's and my personal Atty as well.. Chris never,
curiously responded. Rather he felt that his, shall we say, somewhat limited
legal talent would be more than sufficient. However as we now of course
know, some change of attitude prevailed.....

Not just myself said this WIlliam. Again you are making an assumption
that is not in evidence, with respect to this situation and your comment here.
For purposes of enlightening you WIlliam, I will now inform you that
many legal people that I have direct contact with have looked into this matter
at my request, and on my nickel, and this is their collective general opinion
as well. A few of them are quite well known Atty's, and one has NEVER
lost a case for his clients to date in about 30 yrs...

See my above comment to this less than factual comment.

" think to explore"? What does that mean WIlliam??? I am not familiar
with you sentence construction process here. Please enlighten us
here!! My position is no secret no should it seem strange, as I am
a strong believe in free enterprise and the global economic revolution
system that we have all been experiencing and have the ability to
participate in... The more participation the better I say! >;) It is plain
that the ICANN is looking forward to providing its cronies all the ability
to participate, without having near the competition it would have
