||Who really owns dot-biz G-TLD ? It looks like Winstar does!
The origins of dot-biz lie in Usenet, when activist Karl Denninger in the late 1980s
created newsgroups where commercial messages would be allowed. |
he expanded the concept to allow automated dot-biz domain name registrations in 1995,
and his company, Macro Computer Systems, was sold in 1998 to Winstar Communications.
He says ORSC changed from pointing to Winstar's list of dot-biz names to Alantic
Root Network's in the last year. "The problem is that Gallegos's claim to this is
no more legitimate than Neulevel/JV Team's. I would argue that neither of them has
a legitimate claim," Denninger says.
