See Full Story

Lost in the furious run-up to the November elections was a Kentucky court ruling that could unravel a long-established legal argument supporting basic e-commerce activity: namely, that local or state governments cannot extend their reach into cyberspace to impose their own laws on a Web site. Because that precept is considered so fundamental to e-commerce, it is likely that any challenge to it will eventually be dismissed or overturned. If not, the ramifications would be chilling for e-commerce.


Domain Name Forfeiture
Posted by: SteveFrunkis 2008-11-11 05:22:37 In reply to: Erika Morphy
The concept of using domain name forfeiture as a penalty raises some questions. What if both the defendant and the domain name registry are outside US jurisdiction (e.g. gambling.kz)?
And what if some gambling operator decided to forego the domain name altogether and just put everything behind a single IP address and just advertise that in lieu of a name?

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
