+ - It's Official: Registrars cannot hold domains hostage without a court order->

Stunt Pope writes: Back when the City of London Police issued those "takedown requests" to domain registrars, most complied but as previously reported here, easyDNS didn't. So a bunch of the taken down domains wanted to move to easyDNS. One problem: their registrar wouldn't let them.

It took awhile but easyDNS fought it, and finally got a ruling under the ICANN policy that ordered the hostage domains transferred.
