Well the link on and (the equivilant list 
at auDA is to which is registered to "Momentous Australia" with 
the registrant ID given as 095441571 which is the ACN of MOMENTOUS 
AUSTRALIA PTY LIMITED. is aliased to which is 
not owned by that entity but by Namescout Corp. a Barbadian registered company.

So at the very least the link is misleading punters who might at the point of clicking to 
Namescout be thinking that they would be dealing with an Australian entity.

Interestingly the contacts on the registration are at which is 
owned by corp o/a Momentous/Momentus . is 
registered through a registry known as which is apparently Corp 
of Nepean Ontario ie. part of the Momentous domain name conglomerate.

Even more quaint is the fact that patrons of who register .ca domains 
there are not forced to deal with an entity operating out of Barbados and all Canadian 
taxes and duties are paid on the transaction.

It seems to me that what's sauce for the Cannuck should be sauce for the Ocker!
