Canadian Court Rules Domain Names Are Property
The Court of Appeal for Ontario ruled in favor of Tucows that domain names are property. This now leads to a flurry of new questions. What does this mean for ICE domain seizures? How will this affect service outages? Can domains be seized for violating a TOS of a web host? Before we get ahead of ourselves, this ruling still has the option of being appealed at the Supreme Court of Ontario. It is going to be very interesting to see how this unfolds.
