I agree as long as hairyholis.nsw.au never steps foot in victoria
and cramps my style.

Subject: [DNS] Solution to Name Registration



Having been watching very quietly for some time, and now that the new 
regime is in place, and many people know my feelings about it, I thought

I'd add something that auDA should seriously consider to avoid FUTURE
disputes.

The policy requires "registration of a business name or company"
correct?

So why not then register domain names the same way.

nsw.au
vic.au
qld.au
etc

Then each BUSINESS name can apply for registration of it's appropriate 
state.au name space which you are GUARANTEED will not be disputed,
simply 
because the Business Names Act only provides for use and trade of a name
IN 
the state of registration.

That means JOE BLOW registered in Victoria can have joeblow.vic.au and
not 
conflict or give rise to a dispute with JOE BLOW in NSW who also trades
as 
"JOE BLOW" as he can register as joeblow.nsw.au

Companies - that is those incorporated under Federal law - Corporations
Law 
- who have trade rights throughout the Commonwealth of Australia can 
register in com.au which I guess means more "commonwealth.au" more than 
commercial, right?

This means NET.AU can be returned to it's original intent and purpose - 
that being for network providers to identify their own resources and can
be 
of no cost consequence to those who are ISPs operating as such and are 
members of say the TIO.  Yes, it forces TIO membership, but the TIO
isn't 
constitutionally legal, nor does it abide by Corporations law, so 
membership really doesn't matter.  (No, don't argue with me, the FC
matters 
of ALI and Viper were fought against the ACA, not the TIO.  So raising
this 
means you know less than you think you thought you did.)

EDU.AU is already operating just fine and with it's correct process,
GOV.AU 
is fine as is, and CSIRO.AU is fine as is.

This would mean the only "competitive" name space - well, there is 
none!  Because there is no "registrant" competition, and there is no 
REGISTRY competition.

In fact, what would be even better would be for automatic registration
of 
BUSINESS and COMPANY names through the state registration body or 
ASIC.  Solving ALL disputes, and problems.

However, this will never happen in my time as a "stakeholder."

Whilst the greedy corporate (HIH, OneTel, Enron, Worldcom, Ansett owner
Air 
New Zealand, and just about every insurance company) wipes BILLIONS off 
their "paper trail values" because they artificially inflated the worlds

economony, and now they tumble and fall, one at a time, but sufficiently

enough to have a domino effect, Melbourne IT will no doubt have to look
for 
other ways to return profits to shareholders as it's demise is on the
cards 
without any question.

Look at Network Solutions.  The company we all loved to hate in the 
90's.  But reality was, it worked, so we stuck with it.  ICANN was
created 
(call it auDA for a localised version) and Network Solutions fell
through 
the floor.  It was snapped up for a song by Verisign who are now finding

life just as difficult, but they still have their core business which is

pretty much proprietary.

So who will purchase MIT as it's shares fall and the next wave of 
Australian Corporate Demise hits our short sighted reality.

All I can say is thank god I retied from IT&T and now work in a
different 
industry.  Although I'm still a stakeholder in the DNS game, mostly
because 
of endless legacy actions and activities, I'm glad I don't have to enter

the political school yard games that constantly abound by those who call

themselves professionals.

I'm sure there is a film in all of those somewhere, or even a TV 
Series.  Maybe it will appear next year!  Watch for your character to
appear!
