Subject: Duplicate IP address - what to do?

Message:
 

 
I recently signed up with my provider (cable modem) for a static
IP address and duly received one.

However when I was trying to get the program "talk" to work in cooperation with a USA-based friend it came to my attention that the same IP address is registered to a completely different domain name in some servers.

I am based in the Czech Republic and here my IP address appears to be completely kosher.  But some nameservers in the USA produce the other address.

I wanted to ask what is the accepted procedure for reporting problems of this nature (other than contacting my provider, which I've already done). 

I also wanted to ask for pointers to any good sources of information (FAQs, etc.) on the subject of DNS and domain name registration, especially the technical and political aspects thereof.

Thank you very much in advance.
