You’ve noticed, perhaps, that Verisign have hijacked the net to show their website every time you mistype a .com or .net address so that your browser can’t find the server you’ve asked for? There’s some interesting, though complicated, discussion of this, monopoly and regulation of the internet in a Slashdot thread on this. And Verisign’s rewarded for it all by another big US government contract. (Boing Boing, via Andedammen)
