auDA is currently working closely with its lawyers to deal, on a legal
basis, with what auDA believes, is misleading information contained in
the mail out from NetRegister and also with the thorny question of
misuse of the old AUNIC database. As I'm sure you will appreciate, I am
unable to comment on this matter in any detail at this stage.

In general however auDA is not the ACCC and so our powers under the TPA
are not as great as theirs and we certainly cannot 'bring charges'.

Well I'm not a lawyer, but how about some of these:

* Actually *use* the trade practices act against these bastards. Bring
charges against "NetRegister" and the directors for whatever laws
they've broken.

* Facilitate a class action lawsuit by victims of the ING scam against
the remains of the company and the directors

* Facilitate a class action lawsuit by victims of the recent
"NetRegister" mailout against the company

* Who owns copyright on the database these mongrels are using for their
scams? Facilitate prosecution for breach of copyright.

* Seek an injunction preventing further abuse of the database.

And I'm sure lawyers could think up some other nice ways of making
these scumbags think twice before they try ripping domain
holders off again.
