Three law firms, including the one portrayed in the film ``Erin Brockovich,'' filed the suit in a Los Angeles court Monday against domain administrator NeuLevel Inc., the quasi-governmental Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and over 60 other firms that have been taking applications for new Internet addresses that end in the ``.biz'' suffix.

The suit alleges that the companies are engaged in a criminal lottery because they are taking money for the chance to register ``.biz'' addresses.

******

Did ICANN give them the idea?

Or perhaps they got it themselves, from ICANN $50,000 TLD lottery.

Looks to me like corrupt businesses in league with each other.

For domains - should it not be first come, first served?
