Enom has engaged the services of LegitScript to identify rogue Internet
pharmacists. Legalscript says that "it illustrates the *evolving response of
the Domain Name Registrar community* to the problem of rogue Internet
pharmacies. We encourage other Registrars to consider adopting similar Terms
and Conditions and enforcement policies to identify websites engaged in the
online sale of prescription drugs in a way that violates one or more of the
categories above. (Typically, rogue Internet pharmacies violate at least
three of the categories above simultaneously.)"
It would be far more effective if there is a consortium effort by the
Registrars and Registries, to identify not *only rogue pharmacies*, but more
importantly various kinds of criminal use of domain names.
This can be implemented in several ways, one of which is by what I may call
a *counter-affiliate program. *Is there a possibility of private companies
in the Registry and Registrar constituencies forming a well-funded
consortium non-profit front for this purpose?
