DNS abuse hurts the internet and we're proud to come together with some of the biggest companies in the internet space to take a clear stance against it
Blacknight, GoDaddy, PIR, Tucows, Nominet, Neustar, Donuts, Afilias & Amazon Take Stand on Domain Abuse
BLACKNIGHT.BLOG | BY MICHELE NEYLON
We are big fans of the internet as a whole. Of course as a business you'd kind of expect us to be, but that interest extends beyond business and into our daily lives. When I first went online in the mid 90s the internet was a lot smaller. It was
47Barry Shein and 46 others
All of this with regard to takedowns as a mitigation rather than investigation and criminal prosecution, correct?
(I don't see anything about the latter, so while clear guidelines are indeed an improvement, the framework is basically about conducting more efficient DNS whack-a-mole operations...)
May I remind you you're the ones that shut peoples websites off unless they pay you. That's a new concept to the net and many people consider that to be abuse.
Remember when Wikileaks published the leak about the Julius Baer offshore tax evasion issue that got people into legal trouble?
The US attorney general was able ot get Wikileaks domain shut off for a few days.
By mistake. One can argue the system corrected itself but it should never have happened and only did happen because of corruption and the single point of failure in the ICANN architecture.

This is, I hope, good news. We should hook up more formally. We can provide you daily with some very, very bad domains that needs removing fast and that fit nicely with your number one on the list.

Nice. I wasn’t immediately able to tell — is the opioids portion of your blog a shared policy or Blacknight only? Of course we are well aware of your policy and GoDaddy’s etc on that and very supportive of it — wasn’t sure if that portion is shared with PIR for example.
John Horton the opioids is shared - it’s in the document
Michele Neylon so... while I personally applaud this in some ways, having had the opioid crisis crash into my world, seems a strange limiting line in the sand to draw, no?
Brian Beckham not sure I understand what you are saying. Happy to discuss offline
Couldn't include Tucows in that list, Michele?
Fixed that - sorry
Lots of us not included.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon - Family Guy
