It appears that this 'court' is prank or publicity stunt. What a shame they
couldn't invest their considerable effort into something a little more
worthwhile. My favourite is the "Court of ICANN Governance"....

His address is a building in Melbourne with a number of law firms, although
it is not clear if he is associated with any of them.

Shall we get back to the point now. Other than plunging the domain system
into complete chaos, it would be nice to see some proposals regarding the
domain space we do have control of: .au
