This points out the legal ambiguity of the global top-level domains.
At least with the .to domain it is clear who is responsible for
the domain. With .com, .net, etc. the name space crosses legal
boundaries inviting all sorts of legal confusion. The legal
situation could be clarified considerably if the gtld's were moved
under the country code domains.
Certainly the legal confusion surrounding the gtld's shouldn't
be used as a rational for not developing a process (which is
what Barry suggested) for attending to problems associated with
the country code domains.
