I registered the domain sportsad back on 10th december 2000 with IDR. IDR was bought out by Verisign and domains transferred to them. I decided not to renew the domain.

All ok so far.

Just checked the WHOIS and its in somone elses ownership - BUT its got my nameservers and my creation date.

In other words, this domain was never dropped but changed hands at the registrar level.

Hey safe, thats how SEX.COM was stolen back in the day...
and YES the same company Networksolutions was to blame .
I guess they never learnt their lesson.
I would Sue their Asses ! :)

It was a domain I let expire, so its not technically been stolen - its the fact it wasn't dropped but appears to have changed ownership by some inhouse agreement with the new registrant rather than hitting the registry deletion process.

These stories like sys just reported really suck eggs. I am pissed at such registrar thievery.

Is there any legal condition to say that the registrar of the name cannot take control of the name for non-payment of renewal?

I've seen many fine print that points out they can if they want.

I think registrars are interested in good names just like the rest of us domainers. What is disgusting is that ICANN doesn't have the teeth to police them. So its really a game of which man is more opportunistic.

There will be more to follow on the ICANN "insider trading scandal."
