"There's nothing wrong with you selling domains in your own TLD as long as you don't claim that the whole Internet can see them now. Claiming otherwise is a false statement. Claiming, however, that you're doing everything in your power to make it so is true, though."

Christopher Ambler's email message regarding taking registrations that aren't valid and using choice wording so that it is "technically" legal. Way to go Chris. You should have become a lawyer. This legal "breakthrough" by Mr. Ambler sets the way for IOD to "legally" begin taking registrations that weren't valid. All under the guise of "trying our best".

Actually, there is... you're selling rebroadcast rights that aren't
yours. ("The words, descriptions, and pictures of this game are the
sole property of Major League Baseball and may not be.....)

But this was a bad example. There's nothing wrong with you selling domains in your own TLD as long as you don't claim that the whole Internet can see them now. Claiming otherwise is a false statement. Claiming, however, that you're doing everything in your power to make it so is true, though.

I am not a lawyer, though I almost became one. Got wise, went into computers instead.
