Consumer Alert
Issued by auDA - 17 July 2003

Latest "net.au" mail out by 

Domain Names Australia Pty Ltd

Melbourne, 17 July 2003 - auDA has become aware that Domain Names
Australia Pty Ltd (DNA) is sending letters and/or faxes to some domain
name registrants regarding the net.au version of their .au domain name
being available or unregistered. 
The communication is headed "Domain Name Registration" and could, in
auDA's opinion, be easily mistaken for an invoice. To this extent, auDA
considers that the communication could be misleading or deceptive. 
DNA is a company controlled by Mr Chesley Rafferty, who is also a
Director of Internet Registry Pty Ltd. 
auDA took legal action against Mr Rafferty and Internet Registry in
2002, as a result of which Mr Rafferty gave several undertakings in the
Federal Court. 
auDA believes that this latest mail out by DNA is in breach of some of
Mr Rafferty's undertakings, and we are pursuing the matter vigorously.
If you have received a net.au letter from DNA and you wish to lodge a
formal complaint, please send an email to  <mailto:info&#167;auda.org.au>
