ICANN Asks FTC to Probe Pricing for '.sucks' Domains

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is asking the U.S. and Canadian governments to determine whether the private company that manages .sucks is breaking the law by jacking up the prices brand owners must pay for their own .sucks sites. In a letter to the Federal Trade Commission and Canada's Office of Consumer Affairs, ICANN's top lawyer John Jeffrey said the organization "may seek remedies against Vox Populi if the registry's actions are determined to be illegal" by federal authorities.
