Verisign: In the Crosshairs: This was as inevitable as Tara Reid’s skirts are short. Makes me about as happy, too.
“Verisign, which some critics charge has a monopolistic position as the caretaker of Web domains, was hit with a lawsuit late this week charging that its controversial new SiteFinder service unfairly redirects requests for wrongly named Web addresses. The suit was filed in federal court in Florida by Popular Enterprises LLC, which owns search engine site Netster.com. The suit claims antitrust violations and contains a request for Verisign’s SiteFinder service to be shut down. Netster has a competitive service to SiteFinder called SmartBrowse.”
