Re: [wg-b] 1996 INTA Report

The old link doesn't work, but several paragraphs of the text are quoted on
p. 471 of The Domain Name Handbook (you DO have a copy, right?).

"InterNIC and other NICs are fundamentally unsuited to play a judicial
role, particularly since domain name/trademark disputes are highly
contextual in nature and require a close examination of the facts and
equities of each case in order to reach a fair result.  No amount of
tweaking the current dispute policy will remedy this."

and more....
