Thankfully, this probably won't be an issue for you. Until Melbourne IT
took over, Mr Elz gave people a number of guarantees.  The conditions
that were in place from May 6, 1996 until Melbourne IT took over had
the following clause:

--> Registration will persist until requested to be removed by the requesting
--> organisation, or until all reasonable attempts (which will not extend to
--> advertising in newspapers, or similar costly extravagances) to contact the
--> registered organisation for a period of no less than 3 months have failed.

Could someone else pass a comment on what an estoppel is?  I sincerely hope
that Melbourne IT knows that they are going to hurt these companies financially
if they take away their domain names, and what this will imply afterwards.
