Re: [ga] Request for a Working Group
I agree with Michael. In addition to the local and national authorities that
provide consumer protection, virtually every state in the U.S. provides
aggrieved parties a private right of action for unfair and deceptive trade
practices. If the Verisign registrar campaign is deceptive (and I don't make
any claim about that), then every affected registrar and registrant, both
individually or as a class, likely has a private remedy available to stop
