Domain Names Australia - Update 14/10/03

Posted by Jo Lim on 14 October 2003

auDA is aware that DNA has sent another mail out to businesses, schools, government agencies, non-profit organisations and individuals in Australia, with the heading "Internet Name Currently Unregistered".

auDA is continuing to pursue representative proceedings (class action) against DNA. Please click here for more information.

The ACCC also initiated proceedings against DNA on 2 October 2003.

As part of the proceedings that auDA has issued against DNA, we applied for an interlocutory (or temporary) injunction restraining DNA from using the funds they receive as a result of the mail out. The application was heard on 25 August 2003 before Justice Finkelstein but was unsuccessful. A copy of the Orders and Ruling is available here.
