.RU domains: No rules, no responsibilities

Posted 02-20-2010 at 07:19 AM by Web31337

Few days ago we had an accident with one of Russia's most popular bittorrent tracker site, torrents.ru. A domain was undelegated from DNS servers by request of our agencies.
While, in an official agreement, that accepted by both sides(registrar and registrant) when a new .ru domain is registered there is a note about "Registrator may not interact with conflicts a registrant may have with 3rd parties."
In this case it were two companies, complained about "torrents.ru redistributes their software". Crappy stupid copyrighters... I must admit, those two companies always complain about it. What does a man having money needs? Yes, more money. And more power.
It seems like this rule has been forgotten and never really mattered. So, any domain may be closed that way in our 'RU' zone, uh? Just for a single tiny paper.
RU-CENTER who are a registrar for torrents.ru did not explain that.
This is not a first accident within this domain zone.
From what I can say, I will never buy any domains in this zone for my own projects/etc. For a good example we may take wikileaks.org, which is still working, while most governments trying to hunt it down. Interesting thing, isn't it? org zone ftw.
