Can ICANN? - Internet Group That Governs Web Names Comes Under Fire
Who controls the Internet? The common perception is, no one. But

From BNA Internet Law News
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court decision
which dismissed a suit by Virtual Countries, a company that owns the domain, against the Republic of South Africa. The
suit sought a declaration that the country had no rights to the
domain and an injunction stopping any potential ICANN UDRP claim. The
case was dismissed based on generally immunity granted to foreign
states from suit and the fact that there was no basis for the court
to assert subject matter jurisdiction.
