Anti-Trust Complaint Filed Against ICANN, Registerfly and Enom

by Adam Strong in Categories: ICANN / Policy

Two individuals have filed a complaint in US Federal Court in California accusing ICANN, Registerfly.com and Enom.com of anti-trust activities  [pdf document].

  The complainants are seeking $25 Million in damages. Accusations found in the court documents also claim the companies were involved in racketeering, RICO violations, Sherman Anti-Trust Act violations, fraud, breach of contract, negligence and more.

This latest case surrounding the Registerfly fiasco has become more interesting with the lofty charges of anti-trust and RICO violations brought specifically against ICANN . The RegisterFly.com mess happened over a year ago when the company, both an ICANN accredited registrar and at one point an Enom reseller, collapsed over internal company issues.  A good summary can be found here.  The problems that registrants encountered during this time forced ICANN to strip Registerfly of their ICANN accreditation and Godaddy was brought in to help clean up the carnage.  A previous class action suit was brought up against the company last year.
