It seems that Verisign's chickens have come home to roost.
Last week Verisign sued ICANN due to their suspension of Verisign's SiteFinder service, http://www.circleid.com/article/507_0_1_0_C/.
Cnet News is now reporting that Go Daddy has contributed $100,000 to ICANN's defense fund, http://news.com.com/2100-1038_3-5168598.html.
A new site, http://recallverisign.com are asking visitors to sign a petition that Verisign be removed as the registry for .com & .net domain names. This site lists the SiteFinder fiasco and Verisign's new "WLS" backorder service as examples of Verisgn intent to monoplize the domain name industry.
Other grass roots efforts against both SiteFinder (http://www.whois.sc/verisign-dns/) and WLS
(http://www.stopwls.com/) are active as well.
