Networks Solutions Inc., the company that assigns Internet domainnames, is asking a federal judge to undo an order that not only required it to un-registera name that violated a trademark, but also barred it from ever assigning any similar nameto anyone else.
Claiming that the order has converted it into an Internet policeforce, the NSI lawyers — Carl A. Solano, Theresa E. Loscalzo, Wendy Beetlestone andSharon Fenick of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis — argue that the order should bemodified because battles over Internet domain names must be fought in court betweenprivate parties and NSI’s only role should be to honor whatever the courts order.
