All former DNSO GA members or other interested stakeholders/users,

  See:  http://www.circleid.com/article/574_0_1_0_C/

   Again, as I predicted some years ago, CircleID has announced that the

owner of the Sex.com domain name today has got 'a final settlement with
VeriSign (formerly Network Solutions, Inc.), concluding a six-year legal

fight that set several important precedents for the future of the
Internet. After the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted Sex.Com a
sweeping victory that held VeriSign/Network Solutions, Inc.
"VeriSign") strictly responsible for mishandling the famous domain name,

Sex.Com and VeriSign have settled Sex.Com's lawsuit against VeriSign.'
Gary Kremen was awarded a $65 million judgment against Cohen for
the domain name, which the U.S. Supreme Court declined to overturn on
June 12, 2003."


  I can only say that the than heated debate about sexually oriented
Domain names has cost the stakeholders/users and especially Verisign
and Mr. Cohen more than just unwarented and disgusting snide attempts
at censorship,but also a chunk of cash!  How foolish...  How wasteful...
