Here’s a potentially interesting developing story: a 16 year old claims that the domain AOLBeta.Com was stolen from him by AOL. He registered the domain name when it came available, and a day later, the domain was transferred to AOL without his consent. This is only interesting because AOL is itself an ICANN accredited domain registrar, and the domain name is now registered through their in-house registrar. Clearly it seems that AOL abused their powers as a domain registrar to transfer the domain name without permission. If that is indeed what happened, it will be interesting to see what, if any, action ICANN takes.
