    It wasn't a State court order. It was a Federal court order issued in the State or MD. There are Federal Courts all over the Country so eggs shouldn't be tossed at the jurisdiction the Feds chose.

    The guy broke US Federal law, hired US businesses to promote his illegal trade, had US customers as clients so he got bitch slapped by US Feds. Verisign is a US company controlling the majority of tlds in the world. If you're gonna break US law you better not have a tld controlled by a US registry. Also you better not be in a Country with an soft extradition agreement with the USA.

    To me this is like jumping in a shark cage and being dropped in a school of sharks. You think your ass is protected until you realize there is a big hole on the backside of the cage and a shark just bit you in the ass. Don't spit in the wind and don't mess around with the Feds in the USA. If you're going to break and flaunt US laws then make damn sure you're protected. Verisign is a USA company, they have to obey USA court orders.

    We need to know what .TLD have no quid pro quo with the US Government and also have no extradition treaty with the US.
