Snippet from this story about Ed Sweeney's outfit:

    Late last month, Capital took auDA to court. Capital claimed auDA's
    threats were misleading and deceptive as auDA was limited to .au
    matters, and had no authority over gTLD issues.

    According to court documents, Justice Bennett found that while evidence
    by TotalNIC director Edward Sweeney claimed the company operated both
    gTLD and .au domain name services, there was "little evidence of the
    operation of that [.au] business at all".

    The court also heard TotalNIC had not informed auDA that the ACCC was
    seeking information from it following customer complaints.

    auDA's legal representatives argued that since auDA's constitution
    states obligations to users of Internet services based in Australia,
    this included gTLD activities in Australia.

    Justice Bennett dismissed Capital's application, and said auDA was
    entitled to suspend Capital.
