Short Take: Domain registry appeals NSI antitrust decision

As expected, domain name registry Name.Space appealed a federal court's decision to dismiss an antitrust case against Network Solutions, which has an exclusive government contract to register ".com" and other top-level domains. Name.Space filed the suit in March 1997, and earlier this month Judge Robert Patterson ruled that the company was immune from antitrust laws because it is acting at the behest of a federal agency.
