    I need a Foreign .com registrar guaranteed to not respond to a subpoena. I am looking to drag out some legal action here in the U.S. If the domain is eventually lost it is of no importance. I would just like to see the fucker spend money on legal fees for the next year trying to get it.

    If someone has experience with this I would appreciate it.

    Don't think it matters where you register the domain - dot com domains are controlled by a US entity in the end so why would the US bother going through whatever registrar you use when they can go to the source. Same goes for the other names they control (something like net, name and a couple of other smaller ones that escape me at the moment)

    I could be wrong but with the main registry on their home soil, the US won't go elsewhere to stop you.

    fatboy is correct
    any icann registrar (anyone selling a .com is just a middle man for icann) must follow icann's rules, which means they will comply with subpoena
    nobody is going to be willing to lose their registrar status for you

    I should have mentioned that this was a TM dispute and not anything to do with criminal activity. I know sooner or later these people will probably figure out they can pursue a WIPO claim with ICANN but in the mean time I wanna see them knock themselves out.. . The attorney the guy is using is obviously clueless. The C&D they sent was 9 pages. For real? The guy could have just called me and asked nicely. LOL..so now fuck him he can twist and rot in the courts.

    They'll go to WIPO, get the domain, and if you've shown any bad faith you'll lose. If you're in the habit of trademark infringement, your registrar may even ask you to move all of your domain names.
