Net's servers under scrutiny
A row is brewing over the reliability and security of the servers
that direct much of the net's traffic. 
Some of the organisations that oversee the net's domains are calling
on the internet's ruling body to give guarantees about the safe
running of these crucial servers.

Why and How to Rent a Domain Name
Renting a domain name from someone who's already registered it
sometimes can be an attractive (or the only) option available if you
want to use it. Doing so can be cost-effective, particularly if your
need is only temporary or if you want to gain the benefits associated
with a pre-existing domain name. This article explains how renting a
domain name works and what should be included a contract for a domain
name rental.

From BNA Internet Law News...
THANKS BUT NO THANKS TO THIS ICANN UDRP DECISION
A WIPO panelist has ordered the transfer of the domain
merci.com to a German company that uses the term as a
trading name.  The domain had been held by a Turkish owner
since 1996.  Although the case went undefended, the panelist
surprisingly never even acknowledges that the name simply
means thank you in French.

AND DON'T CRY ME A RIVER OVER THIS ONE
In a split decision, another WIPO panel has ordered the
transfer of amazoncar.com to bookseller Amazon.com.  The
site was being used by a Korean man to sell automobiles and
car parts.  The fact that the amazon is a river is
apparently no longer relevant -- in the eyes of the majority
of the panel, everyone in the 70 countries where Amazon.com
has registered a trademark must now surrender most any use
of the word in a domain to the online bookseller.
