Texas Company's Legal Troubles Hold .iq In Limbo

It seems ironic that a Texas-based president took control of the physical Iraq and a Texas-based company took control of the cyber Iraq.  I wish the source of this article was a little more reliable and complete.  I would love to know how a company got control of a national root domain in the first place.  I wonder what Rwanda is doing with their root domain. ;-)

Actually, this isn't uncommon.  Tuvalu, or .tv, sold their rights to VeriSign, who pulled an advertising blitz a few years back hoping to make a few companies sign up.  (See www.tnt.tv)  .cc (Cocos) and .bz (Belize) did the same.

And anyhow, see http://www.nic.rw/cgi-bin/index.pl.
