    Should Verisign be held responsible ??

    News.com is having this article today on sex.com's 6 years prolonged case...Sex.com case turning dirty ...

    A couple of lines suggest me that verisign could also be held responsible for the unauthorised transfer it made to a fake owner...

    In this phase of the legal saga, which has gone on for more than six years, the appellate judges are trying to decide VeriSign's culpability in the case.
    What do you think..should verisign also take a part of the blame??

    You have to request a moderator to do that for you.

    Yes I think Network Solutions should be liable for something, but certainly not the full damages, as they didn't perpetrate the fraud.

    If the same thing happened now, they should certainly be held responsible. But this happened a long time ago; it happened at a time when the idea that someone might fraudulently transfer "ownership" of a domain was simply not considered.

    You have to judge their actions in light of the attitudes of the day; they made a mistake, but if you told them such a mistake would end up costing $50M they'd think you were crazy.
