Come and see the Taxi monopoly in Canberra. $100,000 for a new license :)

Probably best not to implicate M-IT to that level, as you aren't prevented
from using DNS because they refuse a domain using whatever reason is
popular that day. They escape that by saying go to a registry that does
allow whatever request (eg .com or a 'hijacked' ISO country TLD). Maybe
everyone will be happier once a second registry is announced.

The internet is just one big legacy system.
