Well, see the way I see it, it would be held in any court according to the TLD's authority - so registering a .co.uk domain for 5 days in order to prevent competing businesses selling the domain, would most likely be heard under a British court. Besides, as I said - I don't care whether Australian jurisdiction applies or not - what I said is that if I see that a business is engaged in activates that would breach our TPA/other business laws then they will never, ever have my business. Hell, if I found out they pay their employees less than the Australian minimum wage they'd loose my business!Either way, I would say it is unfair, but seeing as the Australian rules and USA rules are completely different, doesn't mean that the Aussie laws would outlaw the USA rules is false, as said in somebody else's post it would be held in a US court, not In Australlia.
And you wonder why politicians often promise our system will never model the American!
Anyway I'm done with this thread. If you think NS has the "right" to prevent other registrars from registering domains searched on their website, well good for you.
